Are you living with a terminal illness, caregiving for a loved one at the end of life, or grieving the death of someone important in your life? Hospice can help.
At Hospice we believe that the dying should experience dignity and peace, their caregivers should get the help they need, and their friends and family should be supported in their grief. We have been serving the community for over 30 years, we are Canada's first community based Hospice and a non-profit charitable organization.
Dying, caregiving and grieving are three of life’s greatest challenges that deserve compassionate and caring support. Hospice professional staff and trained volunteers provide a variety of free services.
