Conversations about end of life care and disability are far too limited and infrequent. These are delicate conversations for families, service providers and disability communities to have. In the current social climate, the disability representation within our death and healthcare systems is lacking.
Professionals within these systems have little to no education, expertise or awareness in offering palliative care to patients across the disability spectrum.
When someone within the disability community is diagnosed with a life threatening illness, having someone who has a disability competent approach becomes essential.
SEOL CARE offers disability competent end of life care, support and planning for people across the disability spectrum .We also offer help in navigating the systems that provide equitable and quality health care.
