HOSPICE VAUGHAN RESIDENCE
HOSPICE PALLIATIVE CARE IN OUR COMMUNITY
Early spring of 2021, Hospice Vaughan opened the first 10 bed palliative care hospice in Vaughan. This facility will offer 24 hour / 7 day a week compassionate and comprehensive end-of-life care for individuals and their family. Each suite has large picture windows facing into the gardens, private bathroom, refrigerator and television.
There is room for families to comfortably visit and be with their loved ones throughout the day and night. Caregivers and family members will also have the opportunity to receive support through this journey.
All referrals must be made through your family physician or health care provider.
Your loved one will be cared for 24/7 in their private suite. Room for family, friends and caregivers to spend time.
