Planning Ahead

You and your family should be planning for your discharge from the moment you hear you will be admitted to St. Paul’s Hospital. This section contains resources that can help you start planning early, which will help make your discharge from the hospital smoother.

If you would like assistance, social workers are available to help you. They provide support, counseling, education, community information and referral information about, or assistance in, completing advance directives. They also assist with discharge planning. They can be reached by calling: 604-806-8221.  

If you need an interpreter, please let our office know as early as possible in your care so that we are able to accommodate you. See our contact information.
