Year 1: A Dream, A Nightmare - Dr. John Beamish

Dr. John Beamish, Medical Director of Hospice Peterborough, reflects on the first year at 325 London St. in his video ‘A Dream, A Nightmare.’

Hospice Peterborough extends their sincere thanks to Dr. Beamish. During the height of COVID-19, to limit the risk of exposure to the virus, Dr. Beamish cared for all of our Residents in our Care Centre for months, without a day off.

Dr. Beamish is also one of the founding members of Hospice Peterborough and a tireless advocate for hospice palliative care.  Our community has been so fortunate to benefit from his dedication and expertise for over 32 years. Thank you!

The Light Inside

Completed in 2015 in partnership with Director Neal Hicks, The Light Inside focuses on living with a life-threatening illness and bereavement – telling the intimate story of two families learning to live with death as a companion, not an enemy. The film helps to explain the work of hospice palliative care…the work of Hospice Peterborough.

Notice: This video contains personal and powerful local stories about life-threatening illness, death and bereavement. If you or someone you know has recently been diagnosed with a life-threatening illness or experienced the death of a loved one, please consider watching this video with someone for mutual support in case strong emotions arise. Hospice also offers support. Please reach out if need be: 705-742-4042
