Chinese New Year: Meet Dr. Peter Louie | 农历新年- Peter Louie博士

Canuck Place Care |

The care Canuck Place Children’s Hospice provides to children and families is, at its core, about savouring life. It centers on families spending time together and making happy and loving memories.

For the past 15 years, Canuck Place physician Dr. Peter Louie has cared for children living with life-threatening illnesses. He plays a key role in supporting children with medically complex conditions, managing their symptoms to ensure they feel as well as possible. By helping a child feel well, he provides an opportunity for them to enjoy quality time with family and friends.

Dr. Louie says he is amazed every day by the commitment and compassion of the Canuck Place team. It is what drew him to work here in 2005, and continues to be a driving force in ensuring excellence in his work.

“I saw how the team worked together to provide comprehensive care for children and their families and how that care improves their quality of life,” said Dr. Louie.

At Canuck Place, doctors, nurses, counsellors, recreation therapists, kitchen and house staff, and many volunteers work together to care for the whole family. Each member of the Canuck Place team is committed to enhancing the quality of life for the child and family members.

Every Chinese New Year, Dr. Louie joins his large, extended family for a New Year’s feast. Spending time with his family reminds him of the lessons the children and families at Canuck Place have taught him.

“As a doctor, we tend to talk more than listen. I have learned from families how important it is to listen, determine their understanding and find out about their wishes or concerns. It has also made me a better listener outside of work.”

Chinese New Year is a time for Dr. Louie to focus on living well and celebrating life, two core values of Canuck Place. Whether it is sharing a delicious meal or the joy of opening a red envelope, Chinese New Year is a reminder that family and spending time together is what’s important.

This Chinese New Year, help Canuck Place children and families savour life. Give today.

卡纳克儿童疗养院向需要接受临终关怀服务的儿童和家庭提供帮助,其核心就是让家庭在一起共度美好的团聚时光,并留下幸福而充满爱意的回忆。

在过去的15年中,卡纳克儿童疗养院的医生Peter Louie博士一直照顾患有生命危险疾病的儿童。作为医疗团队主要负责人之一,他治疗患有复杂疾病的儿童,控制他们的症状以确保他们的感觉向良好的方面发展。通过帮助孩子感觉良好,他为他们提供了与家人和朋友一起享受美好时光的机会。

Louie博士说,他每天都会对卡纳克的团队为其所服务的家庭所作的一切承诺和努力而感到惊讶。这就是促使他在2005年就开始一直在这里工作的原因,并且这也成为继续促进他努力工作的动力。他说“我看到了团队如何共同为儿童及其家庭提供全面护理,以及这种护理如何改善他们的生活质量。”

在卡纳克儿童疗养院,医生,护士,辅导员,娱乐治疗师,厨房和房屋​​工作人员以及许多志愿者共同努力照顾整个家庭。卡纳克团队的每个成员都致力于提高病童及其家庭成员的生活质量。

在每个农历新年期间,路易博士都会与他的家庭一起享用新年大餐。而当与家人共度时光的时候,他都会想起坎纳克的孩子们和他们的家人教给他的家庭的意义。

“作为医生,我们倾向于说话多于倾听。我从家庭中学到了聆听,确定他们的理解并了解他们的意愿或关注的重要性。这也使我在工作之外成为更好的倾听者。”

农历新年是Louie博士专注于生活和庆祝生活的时候,这也是坎纳克的两个核心价值。无论是共享美食,还是打开红包的乐趣,春节都提醒着我们和家人一起度过的时间是如此重要。

这个农历新年,帮助坎纳克儿童疗养院的儿童及其家庭享受更多在一起团聚的美好时光并帮助他们留下幸福而美好的回忆。请今天就捐赠。感谢Coromandel基金会的慷慨解囊,您在庆祝鼠年时所捐赠的每一块钱都将得到双倍匹配捐赠。
