What We Do

When a serious illness makes it difficult for someone to stay at home, the hospital isn’t their only option. For more than 20 years, the Antigonish Town & County Palliative Care Society has been helping people die at home with comfort and dignity.

The non-profit society relies on donations to provide items a person might need to remain comfortable at home, from portable electric beds, portable oxygen concentrators, lift chairs and tub lifts to air-flow mattresses that reduce a person’s chances of developing bed sores and pain pumps.

  1. Equipment. Purchase and rental of equipment that will enhance the quality of life for persons with life threatening illness.
  2. Education & Support. Provide continuing education and support training programs for the general public, families, volunteers and caregivers.
  3. Presenters. Hire knowledgeable presenters to provide palliative care education
  4. Fundraising. To raise funds for the purchase and rental of palliative care equipment, for programs and for educational resources.
