About SE Health
SE Health is a national health care provider that has been opening the door to new possibilities and care experiences for more than a century.
Recognized as Canada’s largest social enterprise, we employ 8,000 people and visit 18,000 clients every day. Through the SE Health Research Centre, our Health Career Colleges and the SE Health Foundation, we are helping to make the future of health care brighter and stronger.
SE Health provides palliative care services that support both the individual facing a life-threatening illness and his / her family.
Improving quality of life is a key focus of the care that is delivered by our team of nurses working with other professionals within the health care system (personal support workers, physicians, chaplains, therapists, hospice volunteers etc).
Recognizing that individuals living with illness are also faced with many needs, our staff is able to integrate the physiological, psychological, socio-
cultural and spiritual aspects of care to assist those coping with their situation. Our community based palliative care team offers a support system to help people live as actively as possible until death, and to assist families during the person’s illness and during bereavement.
