About Us

Dundas County Hospice offers a variety of services to anyone suffering from a terminal or life-threatening illness. We support clients and their caregivers through all stages of their illness including bereavement support after the death of the client. Our services are supplementary to those that already exist in Dundas County.

All of our services are free.

Anyone can make a referral, including health and social agencies, nurses, physicians, clergy, friends or clients and their families.

Our equipment loan program helps our clients maintain some independence, comfort and mobility. We offer assistance with in-home complimentary therapies for clients that can no longer get out. Along with educating our volunteers,  we try to educate the community as well about hospice and palliative care. We provide a variety of social gatherings and support groups for clients and their caregivers.

Our primary goal is to help clients maintain dignity and die in the place of their choosing.

Philosophy of Care

The Word hospice once meant a house of rest for travellers. Today, hospice is a philosophy of care that attends to emotional and spiritual needs during the palliation of those approaching end of life or in a life-threatening state.

Compassionate care makes it possible for palliative clients to stay in their home as long as possible. This assistance is directed at improving their lives physically, emotionally and spiritually.

A Team Approach

We take a team approach to ensure that people have the information and care they need. We work closely with community care workers, hospitals, Community Care Access Centre and Community Support Agencies. Many carefully screened and trained volunteers, warm and caring individuals, make up a team that offers spiritual, physical, social and emotional support through in-home visits.
