Palliative Care Outreach

Each week, the Amahoro House volunteer Palliative Care Outreach team visits the IW Emergency Overnight Shelter. Our team includes physicians, nurses, massage practitioners and other passionate community members. We believe a cornerstone of good care is hospitality, so we bring a lovingly cooked and nourishing meal whenever we visit.


In addition, we provide shelter guests with support, visits and company whenever they become hospitalized, and companionship, comfort and coordination whenever dying. We provide shelter staff and guests with bereavement support, and shelter staff with medical priority bed support.
