Hospice King-Aurora

 

More Information

Hospice King-Aurora’s vision is to create a community of compassionate hospice and bereavement care, which it undertakes by offering specialized services and support to those who live with life-threatening illness and to those who are bereaved. Since 1983, Hospice King-Aurora has provided compassionate care, education and understanding of the nature of loss and grief through its professionally directed, trained network of volunteers.

What are your admission/referral criteria?

Individuals with a life-threatening illness, the people who care for them and those who are bereaved. No medical referral is needed.

How would you answer the following question if asked by a patient, client, resident and/or family?

"What can you do for me?"

We can offer you volunteer, non-medical help – the same things that a family member, friend or neighbour would do for you – practical help, companionship, the chance for your family member to get a break. We’ll help you to access other services, and navigate your way around the health care system. If you’re a family member or caregiver, we’ll help you come to terms with your loss – whether it’s happened yet or not.
