Compassion. Support. Care.

Hospice care for all of Simcoe County.

As a specialized form of healthcare, hospice palliative care aims to relieve suffering and improve the quality of life for those living with a life limiting illness, as well as their families. Hospice palliative care addresses the specific physical, psychological, social, spiritual, and practical issues, and their associated expectations, needs, hopes and fears on an individual basis.

Support is available from the initial diagnosis of the illness for as long as support is required. Most clients come to us after receiving a cancer diagnosis but our supports are available for anyone living with any life threatening illness. This includes, but is not limited to HIV/AIDS, end-stage lung, kidney or heart disease, ALS and advanced neurological conditions.


24 hour care in a place that feels like home.

At Hospice Simcoe, we are committed to providing compassionate, expert care and support. The residents and families are at the centre of care. We respect the autonomy of the resident and family in the decision-making process and we are here to assist, educate, support and guide you and your family towards a dignified end of life journey and death, where you are comfortable and can feel at home.

Cope with your grief together, through living and grieving.

Grief is an individual experience, however it does not need to be done alone. Using a person-centred approach Hospice can provide support unique to the individual’s needs, while offering a community where people can openly share in their grief.
