The focus on Hospice care is on comfort, not cure and on life, not death. Our goal is to make each person’s last months of life as comfortable as possible while supporting families to be together and say goodbye. Hospice Greater Saint John is dedicated to compassionate care that celebrates life at Bobby’s Hospice, Atlantic Canada’s first 10-bed Residential Hospice.
