Hospice Services

The Community Care Health & Care Network's Hospice Services is a community-based service dedicated to supporting people diagnosed with a life-threatening or terminal illness and their families. The mission of Hospice is to help these people live at home or in a home-like setting as comfortably and fully as possible.

Hospice provides a range of services focused on quality of life until the end of life as well as bereavement support for loved ones. Services can include respite care and caregiver relief, complementary therapies, liaison with other community supports, transportation and friendly visiting by trained volunteers.

Since 1988, Hospice Services has been providing a combination of active and compassionate therapies intended to comfort and support individuals who are living with, or dying from, a progressive life-threatening illness, as well as support for families and the bereaved. There is no fee for the services.

The heart of Hospice Services is a group of volunteers, men and women of all ages and backgrounds displaying sensitivity, excellent listening skills, and a willingness to serve. Attendance at an extensive training program is compulsory prior to becoming a volunteer.
