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.

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.
———————-
Hospice Simcoe’s Grief and Bereavement Program supports individuals and families who have experienced the death of a loved one within the last 5 years. This support may include case management, peer support programs, and/or psychoeducational groups. If we are unable to support you (ie requested support is beyond our scope), our Social Work team can assist with referring you to another organization.
We are unable to provide medical intervention or advice, clinical counselling, financial assistance, driving services, mental health counselling, legal intervention or advice, or ongoing open-ended counselling.
