The new Northumberland Hospice Care Centre will be a place where life is lived, and every moment is important. A place that is always open, and as close to home as it can possibly be. A place that is accessible and accommodating to residents, and as many friends and family members as they wish to welcome. A place that is beautiful, bright and airy, and most importantly, will offer compassionate care and comfort. This beautiful new facility is scheduled to open in the summer of 2019.
The new facility will be a two level building, containing both a main level focused on patient care and a lower level focused on outreach and education. The main level will include 6 Hospice Care suites, a family dining room, living room with a children’s play area, an education room and many more support rooms where a variety of services will be offered. There will be a spiritual room for all faiths and traditions, along with beautiful gardens, terraces and a quiet room for patients and their family to spend time in as well.
We will build the Hospice Care Centre on a 1.5 acre of land on Ontario Street in Hamilton Township. Here we will continue and expand our current programs and provide end-of-life services by an inter-disciplinary team with palliative care expertise 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, at no cost to those receiving the service.
The community response to build a hospice has shown us firsthand the strong commitment and belief in the need for a Hospice Care Centre in Northumberland County. Through the dedication of our campaign volunteers and donors like you, our community is stepping forward and helping us reach our vision of a place for excellence in hospice palliative care.
