Services

What We Offer
Hospice staff and volunteers offer free, in-home, non-medical care and support to qualifying individuals, family members, caregivers and the bereaved.

Who Qualifies?
Residents of North or South Dundas who live in their own home, with others, or in a retirement home may be referred. Dundas County Hospice accepts referrals from relatives, health and social service agencies, nurses, physicians, clergy, or friends for any adult or child at any stage of a life-threatening illness or from anyone providing care for a terminally ill dependant. We also accept self referrals.
Confidential and Discreet Assistance
Our warm and caring volunteers are trained to create a trusting environment and safe space for our clients through discreet and dignified behaviour that respects individual privacy. We do not discriminate based on race, colour, religion (creed), gender, gender expression, age, national origin (ancestry), disability, martial status or sexual orientation.
