The 10 bed residence at Hospice Simcoe assists people who are dying to live with dignity and comfort in a place that feels like home. We are able to provide 24 hour nursing care including pain and symptom management, social, psychological, spiritual and practical support. We also support family members with their bereavement needs. Our average length of stay is about 10 days, however it can be as brief as a few hours or as long as a few months.
We encourage you to review our “Welcome Booklet” and the virtual tour.
A Home and Community Care, Client Care Coordinator will complete an assessment and referral prior to your admission to Hospice Simcoe. Contact the LHIN (Local Health Integration Network) by calling 705-721-8010.
We encourage people to include Hospice in their end of life plan early. A referral can be made before the individual is ready to come to Hospice. However, for people who make this decision late, we are happy to help you get a referral.
Admissions are based on an assessment tool that identifies the person most in need of the bed. Length of time on the referral list is not considered when prioritizing patients for admission.
At any time, please contact Tammy Pollard, Residential Care Manager: 705-722-5995 ext. 326.
“Hospice Simcoe became a sanctuary of comfort, dignity and helped guide Jeff and our family through the last chapter of his life surrounded by love. Forever grateful.”
“What you do in this incredibly special place is beyond words and thoughts. Thank you from our hearts to each and every one of you. You've made the heartbreak and pain of loosing a parent a little easier with your compassion and care.”
“The care they gave my husband during his last week was exceptional. As important was the care they gave to our family. We can never say enough about the staff and volunteers.”
“A dream I had was to plan and host my parents renewing their vows which I was able to achieve. She then passed a day later, but the love we all felt in those moments was so amazing. We had amazing support and help by the hospice staff.”
“Being in hospice with my mother, saved us as a family. I finally was a daughter, a mother to my children, and could sleep better at night knowing she was checked constantly. The funny part was my mother loved humming birds and they are like the mascot of Hospice Simcoe, everything was like it was meant to be.”
