STAY AT HOME – PROVINCIAL ORDER

OUR NEW HOME

Since 1995, the compassionate caring staff and volunteers of Hospice Vaughan have supported individuals and their families, as they journey through a life-limiting illness. Serving with love and dignity, our commitment is to care for individuals to live fully and ensure a better ending.

Our interdisciplinary team of professionals includes Social Workers, Psychotherapists, Registered Nurses, Registered Practical Nurses, Personal Support Workers, Physicians and our volunteers who provide programs and services to the individuals we care for in our community and within our residence. Additionally, we care for the family members, caregivers, and friends during their loved one’s illness, and afterwards with grief and bereavement support.

Our new Hospice Palliative Care Hub will include a 10-bed hospice residence that will open soon, providing a final peaceful homelike space for individuals and their families who require end of life support.  The existing Hospice Vaughan community programs and services will continue to expand.

Thank you to our generous community donors and supporters who, over the past 26 years have assisted our community hospice services, along with our capital donors and all those who have continued to support us in offering hospice palliative care services throughout Vaughan – all at no charge to our families.

Together we are here to serve.  The new Hospice Vaughan –Mario & Nick Cortellucci Hospice Palliative Care Center of Excellence is proud and honoured to be part of our city’s and region’s legacy.

DYING IS A PART OF LIVING

As we die we are still the same person we’ve always been. Our story goes on even as we write the last chapter. No matter what we believe happens next, sooner or later we all face the certainty of our common mortality. Questions will arise: What is a good death? Will it be comfortable? How will my family cope? Who will help us navigate the unknown? Answers can be hard to find. To learn more, please watch this video.
