Hospice Simcoe’s vision is to be a leader in palliative care, community and bereavement support through compassion, integrity, collaboration and innovation. Our mission is to provide meaningful support to those touched by a life limiting illness, thereby enhancing quality end of life.
Hospice palliative care is aimed at relieving suffering and improving the quality of life for persons who are living with, or dying from, advanced illness or are bereaved. This care includes pain and symptom management in conjunction with social, psychological, spiritual and practical support.
Support is available from the initial diagnosis of the illness for as long as support is required. Most clients come to us after receiving a cancer diagnosis but our supports are available for anyone living with any life threatening illness. This includes, but is not limited to HIV/AIDS, end-stage lung, kidney or heart disease, ALS and advanced neurological conditions.
