WE CARE FOR CHANGING LIVES

Hospice Quinte changes the lives of the terminally ill, their families, and the bereaved for the better by providing individuals, their families, and caregivers with compassionate end of life care, by attending to their physical, psychosocial, and practical needs, and offering empathetic care to those who are grieving.

All Hospice Quinte programs and services are provided at no charge by compassionate and well-trained staff and volunteers.

Our service area includes Quinte West, Belleville, Tyendinaga Township, Deseronto, and the Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory.

We believe everyone in the Quinte Region, and their loved ones, should be provided with compassionate care, in the setting of their choice, and have their end of life journey treated with empathy and respect.

Hospice Quinte has been providing compassionate care in our communities since 1985.

LATEST NEWS & INFORMATION

Tips for Caregivers

According to Statistics Canada, in 2018 an estimated 25 percent of the population provided some form of long-term caregiving to a loved one. As those with illness face multiple losses and grief, and adjustments to a different life routine, so do caregivers. Caregivers may face losses such as the loss of a job, broken or challenging relationships, and having to learn to adjust to new caregiving routines and skills. Caregiving is undoubtedly one of the most rewarding, yet demanding, jobs a person will ever have. Listen to this week's podcast for some tips to help ease the burden of caregiving.

Healthy Aging and Advance Care Planning

September is Healthy Aging Month. Healthy Aging Month was created to empower people over the age of 45 to take charge of their lives, their health, and their passions. This is not just about eating right and getting exercise. It is also about planning ahead. This includes planning for your end of life care. It can be hard to do, but creating an Advance Care Plan could save you and your loved one’s stress and time should you develop a palliative illness or become unexpectedly incapacitated. Learn more about healthy aging and advance care planning in this week's podast.
