Relatives present at the time of care will have all the time they need to reflect as they wish. The provider* will be available to accompany them and answer any questions they may have.

The care team will then remove the catheters.

If the treatment takes place at home, relatives should contact the funeral home, which will organize the funeral. If the treatment takes place in hospital, the hospital will inform the funeral home.

*The term “provider” refers to the physician or specialized nurse practitioner (SNP) who assesses the applicant and provides the MAID care.
