Overview:

Our Mission

Carefor Hospice Cornwall believes it is the right of every individual to have access to comprehensive palliative and end-of-life care.  Embodied in the premise that life is a continuum and that end-of-life like birth is something to be acknowledged.

Hospice palliative care supports people living with life-threatening illnesses.  It provides care for the needs of patients and their loved ones, whether medical, psychological, social, spiritual or practical.  Physicians, nurses, volunteers and  clergy work together with friends and family to ease a difficult life passage.

Carefor Hospice Cornwall opened its doors to Eastern Counties residents in September 2009.  It is a residential facility providing end-of-life care when hospital stays or living at home are no longer possible or practical, making the last days of a person's life with their family peaceful, comfortable and meaningful.
  • 10 large private suites with full ensuite washrooms
  • One suite designated for a child or adolescent patient
  • 24 hr nursing care with daily services of the Hospice phycisian
  • 100 active volunteers performing a wide variety of functions
  • Free of charge to all clients with a valid Ontario Health Card regardless of religion, ethnicity or gender.
  • Immediate family welcomed 24hrs a day
  • Since opening 400 clients and families provided with end-of-life care

Unfortunately at this time, the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long Term Care  only provides partial funding for residential hospices. Every year we must seek $500,000.00 in donations from our local community  in order to meet the operational budget of the hospice.  We are requesting $80,000 to cover the cost of food ($25,000), medical supplies ($28,000), personal care items ($5,000) and the cost of laundering linens ($22,000).
