Evergreen's Position on Physician Assisted Suicide:
Evergreen believes that hospice palliative care is about ending suffering, not about ending life. Demand for physician assisted suicide is reduced by access to palliative care which relieves suffering, often leading to better quality of life and longer life. Evergreen will work for increased access to palliative care for everyone in Markham, Whitchurch Stouffville and Thornhill.
Palcare purchases 20% of hospice services for residents of Thornhill, Markham and
Whitchurch-Stouffville from Evergreen with funding provided by the Central Local
Health Integration Network
Palliative Care, Bereavement Support, Counseling.
