Serenity House Hospice is committed to supporting, educating and empowering individuals and their families who are living with a life-threatening illness.  We will assist families along the  journey beginning at diagnosis, and following through rehabilitation, remission, or onto breavement.

With our dedicated staff & volunteers we provide compassionate care to meet the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of those whom we are priviledged to serve.  Relaxation and support day programs are designed to enhance the quality of life for those living with a life threatening illness and offer respite support for the caregiver.

Our resource centre provides access to disease information, educational resources and services to enhance the delivery of palliative care.  Community speaking engagements can be arranged to educate and bring awareness to palliative care issue.
