Compassion. Support. Care.

Hospice care for all of Simcoe County.

Hospice palliative care is aimed at relieving suffering and improving the quality of life for persons who are living with, or dying from, advanced illness or are bereaved. This care includes pain and symptom management in conjunction with social, psychological, spiritual and practical support.

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.

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.
