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
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.
