We help people and families live well
from diagnosis to bereavement.
living well at HOME
Home is a familiar place of memories, family and friends. Many people tell us they want to live well at home for as long as possible, throughout their illness. We provide in-home medical, emotional and social supports right from the time of diagnosis to help improve quality of life and well-being for everyone, including family and friends. It’s about helping people to live well, no matter what life presents.
We know that thinking about end-of-life care is difficult and that a decision to come to hospice can be filled with strong and mixed emotions. Compassion and dignity are at the heart of hospice care. Our residence offers the warmth and comfort of home, but with all the medical and emotional supports people and families need when coping with death, dying, grief and loss. You do not need to do this alone. We are here to help.
Grief is a natural response to the death of someone in your life. It is personal and unique to everyone, and can impact many parts of a person’s life. We offer grief support programs and workshops to help children, youth and adults explore their feelings of loss in a safe and supportive space. Grief support helps people feel less alone, fosters healthy conversations about grief feelings and provides strategies to promote healing.
Caregiving can be hard work at the best of times. Family caregivers are vital members of a health care team, providing care and support for people living at home. No matter the depth of a caregiver’s love and kindness, caring for another person involves time, commitment and sacrifice. We offer programs to help family caregivers learn different strategies to cope and care for themselves, while they care for others. You care for them. We care for you.
