Hospice Care

We help people remain comfortable at home during their final days.

About Hospice Care

The logistics of arranging for end-of-life care at home can be overwhelming. Our specially trained staff and volunteers provide a range of services to help make this transition as smooth as possible through:

  • In-Home Support: Personal support, homemaking and caregiver relief
  • Visiting Hospice: Emotional support, companionship, caregiver relief and practical assistance from a trained volunteer
  • Bereavement Support: Counselling, support groups, volunteer visitors and drop-in groups

Our Services

Circle of Care’s hospice/palliative care program, accredited by Hospice Palliative Care Ontario, helps to improve the quality of life for those living with a terminal or life-limiting illness, and provides support for family members by recognizing and addressing the need for psychological, social, and spiritual care. Our specially trained staff and volunteers are matched with clients and their families to provide support, information, and resources throughout the end-of-life journey. All volunteers in our Community Hospice Program attend the provincial 30-hour Hospice Care Core Volunteer Training prior to volunteering with clients and families.

Jewish Hospice Program

In addition to our non-denominational hospice program, we also offer a special program designed for the Jewish community. The program is a partnership with Jewish Family & Child.

Service Area

The service boundary for Hospice support runs from Major Mackenzie Dr W to St Clair Ave W., and east from Jane St. to the Don Valley Parkway.

Highlights

  • Companionship for clients, relief for caregivers
  • Volunteers can warm up meals, pick up a few groceries, or accompany clients to medical appointments
  • Complementary therapy programs available, including pet therapy and Reiki

What Our Clients Are Saying

“I really enjoy how much my Hospice volunteer and I have in common. We’re from the same generation and have many of the same memories. We’ve raised our families and worked hard all our lives. His visit is the highlight of my week and a welcome change from worrying about my health.”
