Team Members


Nurses

The Registered Nurse (RN) and Registered Practical Nurse (RPN) are responsible for the nursing care of our residents and their families in accordance with the Regulated Health Professions Act (1991) and the College of Nurses of Ontario.

Personal Support Workers (PSW)

The PSW is a caregiver with hospice palliative care training who assists our residents with their daily personal care needs and supports the resident and family through the dying process.

Physicians

We have a group of core physicians experienced in palliative care who serve our residents in addition to their community practice. The physicians take turns being on-call to accept admissions and follow their resident’s care throughout their entire stay. Physicians visit the Hospice regularly, based on the resident’s need.

Clinical Resource Nurse (CRN)

The CRN is a Registered Nurse who works with our staff to ensure that their knowledge and skill is current based on the standards of palliative care. The CRN, in collaboration with the Care Manager, is also responsible for the intake of admissions to the hospice.

Care Manager

The Care Manager is a Registered Nurse experienced in palliative care who is responsible for the quality care of our residents and their families, and manages the clinical team. They oversee the CRN and collaborates with them throughout the admission process. The Care Manager ensures best practices are maintained throughout our hospice in accordance with hospice palliative care standards, and implements education programs for staff.

Volunteers

We have both resident support and operational support volunteers. Resident support volunteers interact with residents and families. Operational support volunteers complete many valuable tasks that keep our organization going.
