HOSPICE QUINTE 2018-2019 ANNUAL REPORT

Whether you are a long-standing friend of Hospice Quinte, or hearing about us for the first time, we value your time in learning about our dedication to improving the quality of life…. until the end of life, and supporting those who are grieving. Hospice is about helping our clients to live life, finding joy and meaning along the way, and supporting those left behind to work through their grief and to heal.

Hospice Quinte helps dying people and their loved ones face terminal illness and bereavement with compassionate care from volunteers and staff. Our services are provided free of charge to residents in our service area. Hospice Quinte serves Quinte West, Belleville, Deseronto, Tyendinaga Township, and the Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory.

As a charitable not-for-profit organization, Hospice Quinte relies on its relationships with individuals, businesses, and charitable foundations in the community. Without the generosity of our donors and our volunteers, our work would not be possible.
