We were the first rural residential hospice in the Province of Ontario.
We have six beds and offer private rooms and bathrooms in a bright, homey space.
We provide specialized care through our highly-trained staff and volunteers and we care about your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual needs.
We provide emotional support for family members before, during and after care at hospice.
We offer free grief and bereavement services for residents and family members, as well as other residents of Renfrew County.
We have 70 active volunteers at Hospice providing 7000 hours of service each year.
Volunteer Teams include: Reception, Resident and Family Support, Gardening/maintenance, Baking and Fund Development.
Residents’ pets are allowed to visit and therapy dogs visit weekly.
We receive 51% of our funding from the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care. The remaining $630,000.00 we have to fundraise. Our two main fundraisers are the Hike for Hospice and Aikenhead’s Golf Classic.
Palliative care provides comfort and a high quality of life throughout a life-limiting illness.
Hospice is about living well. People come to hospice to live well while they get help to manage their symptoms, to give their caregivers a short break or full care when they are approaching the end of their life-limiting illness.
A typical length of stay at hospice is a few days, weeks or several months.
