RE: Louis Brier’s position statement on Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD)


Having served the community for over 60 years, Louis Brier Home and Hospital is committed to providing the absolute best care possible to all residents, that includes those who have chosen to undergo Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD). No resident who expresses a desire for MAiD will be refused admission nor will they be treated any differently than any other resident. We will collaborate with them, their families, and healthcare providers throughout their journey at our home, including enabling assessments to take place on-site. In a case where a resident is deemed eligible for MAiD, we are committed to assist with arranging a comfortable and safe transfer to the site of provision.
