Overview of programs and Services::

Hospice Care Ottawa is a community-based charitable, non-profit organization. We offer palliative and end-of-life care, at no charge, to individuals and their loved ones.

At Hospice Care Ottawa we support individuals and their caregivers during their entire illness, from the time of diagnosis through to death and bereavement. Programs are provided at our hospice sites across the City of Ottawa and within the community. Delivery of services is made possible through the support of a small dedicated staff, many volunteers and generous donors.
