Palliative education and care for the homeless

What an amazing program. These are the people least served by Ontario healthcare. This is a wonderful story from Toronto.

Dosani, a member of a large network of inner-city health physicians, is part of a new program that takes end-of-life care to the homeless and vulnerably housed wherever they are situated.
Called PEACH — for Palliative Education and Care for the Homeless — the watchword of the mobile program is to give individuals the dignity of choosing where they receive medical and supportive care, and hopefully where they will be able to die.


PEACH, which stands for Palliative Education and Care for the Homeless, is a mobile program in Toronto that's bringing end-of-life care to the displaced.
