    Need help to find home care service providers!!

    Hi, I'm residing in Toronto. Last month my grandfather fell down from the stairs. He got seriously injured and paralyzed. Now he is in the hospital. We are planning to shift him from hospital to home and decided to appoint a home palliative care to provide him with better care. We discussed it with a few of our friends, they also suggested that home palliative care will be better. We have done a little research on centers that provide services in home palliative care in Toronto and found some quality firms. We think it would be better for him. Before calling them, we would like to hear from you. If you are aware of any such home palliative care centres in Toronto, Please share it with me.
    Thank you.

    How old is your grandfather?? Is he not being considered for a spinal cord rehabilitation inpatient acute program?

    (KLD)
    The SCI-Nurses are advanced practice nurses specializing in SCI/D care. They are available to answer questions, provide education, and make suggestions which you should always discuss with your physician/primary health care provider before implementing. Medical diagnosis is not provided, nor do the SCI-Nurses provide nursing or medical care through their responses on the CareCure forums.

    Sorry to hear about your Grandfather. As per KLD is he so old Dr's don't believe he will survive the injury? He may very well prefer death, that is another story. If they are discharging him, he must be stable? If so they should be referring him to physiatry at Lyndhurst Hospital in Toronto for SCI rehab, part of the UHN - University Health Network. The social worker at the hospital he is in should be able to refer you to palliative home care if those are his wishes. Again, sorry to hear about this. So hard on families.
