Unit Care

Care on the Inpatient Unit

Although many patients prefer to be cared for at home, they may be admitted to one of our 18 inpatient beds for any of the following reasons:

  • Assessment and management of pain or other difficult symptoms
  • Respite care to allow a one-week stay with us while caregivers get a rest
  • Ongoing care for people who are unable to remain at home

Our 18-bed Inpatient Unit is as home-like as possible. It includes a family lounge with a television, DVD and stereo equipment, children’s toys and games, a well-stocked kitchen, a solarium with computer access, a smoking area for patients only, and a beautiful rooftop garden.

12 of our patient rooms are private rooms that feature televisions, small fridges, radio/CD players, and sleeper chairs where visiting family members can stay overnight if they wish; three rooms are semi-private rooms without sleeper chairs.

Visiting the Inpatient Unit

Family and friends are free to visit anytime, along with well-behaved pets upon approval. Our unit is located on the 3rd floor of the Royal Jubilee Hospital’s Richmond Pavilion and is accessible by stairs and an elevator.

All visitors must wear a mask when visiting Victoria Hospice. Thank you for your cooperation!
