Palliative care in your community

Learn more about La Maison des Collines

Your palliative care home

La Maison des Collines (MDC) is a centre of excellence in palliative care, with a team of professionals offering support to patients and their families at every stage of the end-of-life process.

Our top priorities are the well-being and comfort of our patients, and the excellence of our services and care. Offering palliative care in both official languages, we welcome all palliative stage patients regardless of ethnic background, spiritual beliefs, sexual orientation, age or social-economic background. We are sensitive to their emotional needs and encourage our staff to be attentive, respectful and warm-hearted. We promote patients’ rights to make informed decisions and to clearly express their wishes for the care they receive and how it is administered. Volunteers are also at the heart of our mission, and their contribution to La Maison des Collines is not only remarkable but essential.

As soon as it opens its doors (scheduled for early 2019), La Maison des Collines will offer a wide range of free services in French and English, including:

  • Comforting on-site accommodation for patients with a life expectancy of three months or less;
  • Respite care and support for loved ones;
  • Temporary admissions for pain control and management of other symptoms;
  • Training for volunteers and health professionals.

A home-care support service, in operation since 2015, is available to those in palliative care who are looking for companionship and who request the service.
