The Indigenous Palliative Care Team currently provides services in the communities of Oneida Nation of the Thames, Chippewas of the Thames First Nation, Munsee-Delaware Nation, and the urban Indigenous community in London. To access these services, please speak with your health care provider or call the London location or Chippewa location.
The Indigenous Palliative Care Team (IN-PaCT) provides services to Indigenous people who have received a palliative diagnosis from a health care provider. Palliative care is a special kind of care that helps improve the quality of life for a person with a life-limiting illness. It is about managing symptoms, planning, and making decisions with you. We believe people should have choices about their end of life such as choosing where to make their final journey.
The SOAHAC team includes a Nurse Practitioner, a Registered Nurse, a Mental Health Therapist, and a Traditional Healer. They work together to provide care directly to you and your family throughout the end of life. The team members will visit you in your home or place of choice to provide health care, information about what to expect, and comfort services to help with your journey. The team will also ensure you have access to the emotional and spiritual support of your choice. You and your family are connected to 24/7 on-call medical support, Personal Support Worker services, and any other community resources you need.
