We deliver programs that offer compassionate care and support for people facing a life-limiting illness. Contact us by phone or by email using our contact form.
Hospice services are focused on life and quality of life, not death. We provide practical and emotional support to residents of Haliburton County in their own homes, in the hospital, and in Long-term Care.
All our volunteers are highly trained through Hospice and Palliative Care Ontario to support clients and their loved ones. After the death of a loved one, we can provide one-to-one bereavement support to family members to help them cope with their loss.
Palliative care is delivered by a multidisciplinary team called the Palliative Care Community Team when a diagnosis of a life-limiting illness has been received. The Patient Navigator will work with other members of the Team, Community Programs, and the Central East LHIN Home and Community Care to ensure that clients/families are receiving all the services required to provide the highest quality of life up to, and including, end of life care.
HHHS is proud to offer 2 in-patient beds at the Haliburton site that have been designed to support palliative care, known as the Palliative Care Centre.
Open to anyone who has been diagnosed with or has survived cancer. Monthly meetings are held the third Tuesday of every month from 1 - 3 pm in the Ruth Parkes room (lower level of HHHS Haliburton, 7199 Gelert Roard). This confidential, friendly group is an important opportunity to share questions and concerns with individuals who share your experience and to gain information, encouragement and hope.
Grief Support Group
Open to anyone needing support through their grief journey. Twice-monthly meetings are held on the second and fourth Wednesday of every month from 1 - 3 PM. This group can help offer you emotional support, reassurance that help is available, and the skills you need to help you through the most difficult days.
