Community paramedics and a palliative approach to care: a conversation with Craig Jones

Strengthening a Palliative Approach in Long-Term Care

27-10-2022 • 15 mins

When you think of paramedics, do you think of 911 and emergency services? A community paramedics program in Peterborough is working to provide palliative and social services to seniors at home, with a goal to help them live well at home  for as long as they can.  Paramedics provide medical, emotional and mental health supports, and can identify individuals who may be at risk. They are also an advocate for patients and caregivers, and develop strong relationships within the community.

We spoke with Craig Jones, the Deputy Chief of Community Projects with the Peterborough County and City Paramedics. He brings 30 years of experience to the role and has a passion for supporting individuals in staying well at home.
