West Parry Sound Hospice


More Information

Our Mission

Hospice West Parry Sound is an accessible community-based organization of trained volunteers dedicated to the enhancement of the quality of life for all who are dealing with a life-threatening illness.

The goal of HWPS is to provide palliative care for people of the Parry Sound area. Our community-based, non-profit organization currently provides training for volunteers in palliative care in order to provide for the Visiting Hospice Services. Many of our palliative clients who face a life-threatening illness live in a variety of settings that include private homes, the hospital and long-term facilities and benefit from the emotional, social and spiritual support provided. Bereavement support is also offered to family members as they face their loss of a loved one.

“Palliative care is about living and giving meaning to one’s life; it’s about sharing tears and rejoicing in laughter; it’s about living with dignity and grace; it’s about life not death.”
