Hospice Palliative Care Ontario

  • Caregivers and Families
  • Health and Wellness

Ontario's hospices are community-based volunteer organizations. Their mission is to help people with life-threatening illnesses live at home or in a home-like setting as comfortably and as fully as possible.

Hospice palliative care supports people diagnosed with a life- threatening illness and their families, while living with the illness during the time of dying and death and for a bereavement period.

Hospice palliative care:

  • Centres on the person and the family
  • Is directed towards meeting physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs
  • Is sensitive to personal, cultural and religious beliefs, values and practices
  • Encourages involvement in planning treatment and care as well as making choices based on knowledge and understanding
  • Is provided through the collaborative work of an interdisciplinary team of caregivers and service providers
