The BC Palliative Care Benefits Program supports BC residents of any age who have reached the end stage of a life-threatening disease or illness and who wish to receive palliative care at home (includes Hospice for medications).
The program allows patients to receive palliative care at home rather than be admitted to hospital. The program gives palliative patients access to the same drug benefits they would receive as if in hospital, and access to some medical supplies and equipment from their health authority.
HME is a proud provider of the Richmond, North Shore, and BC Palliative programs. Working with therapists, HME provides equipment to palliative clients across BC.
