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 Community Care Access Centre (CCAC) assessment is required for admission to Hospice Simcoe. Contact CCAC 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 to get a quick CCAC 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 Coordinator: 705-722-5995 ext. 326.
“It is good to know that I may make the difference in someone’s day today.”
“I am just one small contributor but I see the work that is done by many volunteers to make a difference.”
“I’ve learned how to really live through working with hospice clients, and that’s what has drawn me to stay with Hospice Simcoe.”
“A family told me, “This might be the last nice thing we get to do with our mom” after I gave a reflexology session, and I am blessed to have the opportunity to comfort families at their most vulnerable time.”
