About Hospice Quinte

Hospice is about LIVING

Since 1985 Hospice Quinte has been changing the lives of the terminally ill, their families, and the bereaved for the better by providing compassionate care and support to individuals, their families, and caregivers.

We believe everyone in the Quinte region, and their loved ones, should be provided with compassionate care in the setting of their choice. Hospice Quinte provides end-of-life services both at home and at the world-class Stan Klemencic Care Centre.

All our programs and services are provided at no charge by compassionate and well-trained staff and volunteers. Our service area includes a population of over 110,000 people living in Quinte West, Belleville, Deseronto, Tyendinaga Township, and the Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory.

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

What is Hospice care?

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.

Anyone who is within the last 12 months of life or the terminal phase of a life-limiting illness, may qualify for in home hospice care. Our volunteers provide up to 4 hours of companionship and caregiver respite a week.

Those in the last three months of life, or the end stage of a terminal illness, can have 24/7 care at our Stan Klemencic Care Centre.
