Palliative Care

Palliative Care is provided at both the Huntsville District Memorial Hospital and South Muskoka Memorial Hospital sites.  Our focus is to give patients comfort and to support independence and participation in leisure and self-care activities.  Palliative Care includes psychosocial, spiritual and practical support.

Muskoka Algonquin Healthcare appreciates the support provided by Hospice Muskoka in Bracebridge and Hospice Huntsville/Algonquin Grace, which through professionally-trained volunteers provide compassionate care so that individuals may live out their lives with dignity and comfort either at home or in a health care setting.
