3 Wishes Project

Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at the QEII Health Sciences Centre

The goal of the 3 Wishes Project is to improve the end-of-life experience for patients and their families in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at the QEII Health Sciences Centre. 

The ICU can be a stressful place for patients, families, and clinicians. The 3 Wishes Project brings peace to the final days of a patient’s life and helps to ease the grieving process for those left behind.

We help:

  • patients dignify, honour, and celebrate their lives family members
  • humanize the end-of-life process and create positive memories
  • ICU staff foster patient and family-centered care, and inspire meaning in the workplace

Here are some examples of wishes made by patients and families:

  • Arrange to bring family and friends together.
  • Make the ICU room more comfortable with photos, music, lighting, and more.
  • Provide spiritual and religious support.
  • Host a tribute to the patient with their family members, friends, and staff.

One hundred per cent of net funds will support patients in our region. One time gift receipts will automatically be sent to your email following the completion of your donation.
