The Cassburn branch, which belongs to the Prescott District Women’s Institute invited the public to its ROSE Program presented by Carefor Palliative Day Program and other services in Prescott/Russell Counties. The speakers were Carmen Verdugo, RPN, Coordinator of Palliative Programs and Penny Decoste, Program Coordinator from Carefor which provides services in Prescott/Russell.
The presentation was held at Trinity United Church Hall in Vankleek Hill and 43 people, members and non members – attended.
Carefor offers a Palliative Care Day Program, Palliative Care Volunteer Visiting, and Respite programs. It is a support service provided in a clients’ home which includes Homemaking, Foot care Services, Health & Wellness Clinics, In-Home Exercise and Senior Group Exercise.
With the help of these programs, the aim is to keep patients independent and have them living in their own homes for as long as possible. A Palliative Care Volunteer Program helps ease the burden of dealing with a terminal illness through trained, dedicated volunteers. All services are bilingual. As much as possible, people are encouraged to first inquire which services the Local Health Integrated Network, (LHIN), has available, as they are fully paid for by OHIP.
