Unit Care

Care at our 18-bed in-patient unit

Although most patients prefer to be cared for at home, they may be admitted to one of our 18 in-patient 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 In-Patient Unit on the 3rd floor of the Royal Jubilee Hospital’s Richmond Pavilion 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 quiet/meditation room, a solarium with computer/internet 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.
