The mission of Oak Ridges Hospice is to bring hope and comfort to the community through compassionate support and end-of-life care.
Oak Ridges Hospice will be a tranquil, home-like setting where people with a terminal illness can live their final days with dignity and comfort, while receiving the highest quality compassionate care.
ABOUT OUR CHARITY
Our organization was founded for the purpose of establishing a hospice care centre in Durham Region to provide palliative patients with an urgently needed alternative to institutional care facilities and home care as they approach the end of their life's journey.
Hospice care includes pain & symptom management as well as emotional, spiritual and social support with a focus on improving the quality of life for patients and their loved ones. Care will be delivered free of charge by a skilled team of health care providers assisted by trained volunteers.
Our hospice facility will be located in Port Perry, Ontario and is expected to be the first facility of its kind in Durham Region. Construction began in December 2019 and we will open the doors in 2021 to a warm and welcoming environment where palliative individuals can live their last days to the fullest, surrounded by family, friends and compassionate caregivers.
