Our Hospice

Our Residential Hospice can accommodate two residents at a time, and has plenty of space for family members and friends to have privacy, time for reflection and share memories with their loved one. Staff and trained volunteers ensure that each resident is treated with dignity, respect and the highest standard of care. There is no cost to the resident or their family.

The Hospice House use is appropriate for individuals and families who can benefit from an alternative to their own home or a hospital and whose diagnosis and care needs have progressed to a point beyond which their caregivers feel comfortable or able to manage care at home.  It is a very supportive environment; care can be provided for people who are alone, or without family whom are able to assist them.  

Admission Referral

Admission Agreement

Resource Guide

The criteria for admission primarily involves agreement of the individual's physician, the family, and Hospice that the individual is in the final stages of a life-limiting illness (approximately the last month of life). A health care professional can assess the palliative performance scale (PPS) of the patient and determine if they are appropriate for admission (typically patients are no longer getting out of bed).

The family physician/practitioner may remain involved and oversee care, or they may transfer care to a palliative physician when the resident is admitted to the hospice.  Nursing staff and/or Personal Support Workers will provide care in the hospice, as well as trained Volunteers and other staff who play a very important role in assisting with care and supporting families of our hospice clients.
