What is Hospice?

Hospice care is about living not dying.

In Canada, Hospice Care and Palliative Care share the same principles.

Hospice-Palliative Care focuses on improving the quality of life for persons with a life-limiting illness and it is aimed at the whole person, not just the disease. It assists to make very difficult life situations manageable and meaningful for the ill person and their family.

The primary goals of Hospice Care include providing comfort, relieving physical, emotional, and spiritual suffering, while promoting the dignity of terminally ill persons.

Hospice care can be provided in a person’s home,nursing home, hospital, or at our 2-bed Residential House and is provided by an interdisciplinary team including the physician, community nurses, PSWs, Hospice Coordinators and Hospice Volunteers, social worker, nutritionist, occupational and physical therapists.

In addition to direct care, we offer other services such as Care Services area of our website offers many services to our residents, including the Medical Equipment Loan Program, Visiting Volunteer Program, Caregiver Support, Bereavement Support and more.



Then my wonderful friends from Hospice appeared…what a difference. I didn’t feel so alone anymore. Now I felt that I had connections – just a phone call away - to deal with so many issues. The wonderful volunteers came and sat while I left for a few hours. When I needed equipment it came so quickly I could not believe it. I knew Hospice was there if I needed help. I cannot tell you how much it meant. To each of you who helped lessen my load, thank you so much.
