Norwood Palliative Care

​Norwood Palliative Care has been the recipient of funds from The Order of St. Lazarus Edmonton Commandery for the renovation of rooms for end of life care.  We want families to feel comfortable while visiting their loved one and sometimes that means spending one night, or many nights by their side.  Our new rooms have Murphy Beds, cupboards, dimmer switch lighting, beautiful decorations, comfortable beds with linens, comfort carts with tea and coffee, and each room is decorated beautifully.  It is definitely well received and appreciated by so many.
