About Hospice

Do You Know YOUR Hospice?
YOUR Hospice is an organization like no other. The Hospice mission is to support, educate and empower all those who are affected by or caring for a person with a life-altering diagnosis. We are the first and largest community based hospice palliative care village in Canada and we will soon be the very first Hospice in Canada with a satellite residential home! YOUR Hospice is a Centre of Excellence that provides outstanding services as well as teaching and learning opportunities for professionals, volunteers and caregivers.

Who Should Call the Hospice?
The Hospice welcomes patients, families and caregivers who have been affected by a life-altering diagnosis. This does not need to be a terminal illness. We help people with a wide range of diagnoses, from all backgrounds and ages. In fact, we have 47 Wellness Programs that our Service Coordinator can help you to access. Self-referrals are encouraged, so call us today or visit us at www.thehospice.ca.

When Should I Call the Hospice?
Our programs and services are available from the time of pre-diagnosis through bereavement. We are here to support you through your life’s journey and can help to facilitate medical treatments, education, patient and caregiver support, wellness programs and much, much more.

What is a Visit to the Hospice Like?
Our Hospice Village on Empress Street has been designed as an oasis of peace, comfort and trust for all those who visit us. We have almost 5 acres of land including an inviting 20,000 square foot Wellness Centre for programs, support groups and day hospice, a pain and symptom management clinic, a specially designed home for children and family services, in addition to our Residential Home for 24/7 palliative patients. No matter where you visit, all of the Hospice buildings feel like home with inviting decor and friendly faces to greet you.

Who is on the Hospice Team?
The Hospice team is holistic and works together to put patient and family needs first. We have palliative doctors, nurse educators, social workers, spiritual care providers, complementary care providers, service coordinators and more than 600 active volunteers! With a team like this, we can provide wellness programs, palliative programs, counselling, support, in-home care, day hospice and residential services.

Can I Visit the Hospice?
Yes! The Hospice welcomes patients, families, caregivers and our friends in the community to our Village. Please call us at 519-974-7100 to set up a tour – we cannot wait to meet you.
