Expanding Hospice Care in Niagara

Hospice palliative care is a specialized field of care with a focus on relieving physical pain and suffering and easing emotional distress, as well as giving people an opportunity to reflect on their life, their legacy and find meaning.

No one needs to do this alone. Hospice Niagara is here to help.

In 2025, we will celebrate the opening of two new hospices in Welland and Fort Erie. This expansion will benefit the entire Niagara region, adding 20 hospice suites for people at end of life. Outreach services and bereavement care will also expand once these hospices have opened.

Each hospice will offer the warmth and comfort of home, with all the medical and emotional supports people and families need and deserve in the final days and weeks of life.

This campaign calls on the collective support of our community to ensure people and families in Niagara receive the care they need – everyone, everywhere and every time. Together, we can ensure that hospice palliative care is available free of cost, when people need it most.


The need is clear. And the time is NOW.

Care Closer to Home

Living with a life-limiting illness can be challenging not only for the person, but their circle of friends, family and people who care deeply for them.

Having convenient access to hospice palliative care close to home is good for everyone.

Walker House hospice will be located inside the renovated Foyer Richelieu, a bilingual long-term care home in Welland and Willson House hospice will be beside the new Gilmore Lodge long-term care home in Fort Erie.

Together with The Stabler Centre in St. Catharines, compassionate, exceptional care is no more than 20 minutes away.
