Welcome to Hospice Peterborough

What exactly is hospice palliative care? Why would I come to Hospice?

Receiving the news that you or someone in your family has a serious, possibly life-threatening illness is terrifying. The last thing you want to think about is dying. However, hospice palliative care can be an invaluable resource to you and your family from the time you hear bad news. To quote a long time Hospice client, "Hospice is not about dying, it's about living... and living life to the fullest."

So coming to Hospice connects you with many services that you will find helpful - wellness programs, support groups, the chance to connect with others going through the same situation. You will be welcomed by knowledgeable, caring staff and volunteers whose primary goal is to help you feel safe and comfortable.

Whether you are living with a life threatening illness, caring for someone or grieving, Hospice Peterborough can help guide you through all the challenges, changes and difficult decisions you and your family are facing. Your hopes, your priorities, your comfort and your quality of life define our care.

We hope this website will help you find information, opportunities and options. It also describes the programming we offer.

Our professional staff and skilled volunteers have the knowledge and experience to make a positive difference in your journey. This can be an overwhelming time, but you do not have to struggle alone. Hospice can help.

Please call, email or drop by.

"Hospice is not about dying...
it's about living,
and living your life to the end and to the fullest."

- A Hospice Peterborough client
