What is Hospice?
Hospice is not a place; it is a concept of care. Hospice is about caring when cure is not possible. Hospice is about maximizing the quality of life during the last stages and is provided as a complement to professional medical care.
Hospice palliative care and bereavement support are available and accessible to people in Durham Region experiencing illness, death and/or grief.
Together we provide support, comfort and hope to individuals, their families, friends and caregivers, who are experiencing illness, death or grief by offering volunteer-based: hospice palliative care; bereavement services and educational opportunities.
