About Us

North Perth Community Hospice is here to provide compassionate support.

A Little History

North Perth Community Hospice was incorporated in 1993. It is governed by a Board of Directors and partially funded through a service agreement with South West LHIN and the Government of Ontario. Forty percent of the operating funds are raised through community donations and fundraising events and campaigns.

Caring hands

Great thoughts speak only to the thoughtful mind, But great actions speak to all mankind.

Our Mission Statement

The goal of hospice care is to uphold the quality of life.

The hospice care team of professionals and volunteers recognizes the individual as a whole person and strives to meet his/her physical, psycho-social and spiritual needs.

Hospice care addresses the needs of both the individual and the family.

The individual has the right to make informed choices and decisions based on truth and understanding.

Initial contact may be made by any individual, family, or health care professional. Care will be available throughout the illness and/or grieving process as appropriate.

North Perth Community Hospice will strive to ensure compatibility between the skills, experience and personality of the volunteer and the needs of the individual and/or family.

The hospice program includes ongoing community awareness and education.
