CARE FOR CHANGING LIVES

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, our work would not be possible.

Do not count the days; make the days count.

Hospice Quinte is committed to offering support for individuals facing a life-threatening illness to help them live with comfort, meaning, dignity, and hope. Our in-home visiting program provides reassurance to caregivers as well as companionship and comfort to those who are terminally ill.

Drop In Caregiver Support groups assist those who are caring for someone with a terminal illness. This group offers support and comfort to individuals who are caring for loved ones with a life threatening illness.

Our Grief Toolbox support groups run for eight consecutive weeks. These groups are for anyone 18 or older who has suffered the loss of a loved one, whether that loved one be a child, a young person, parent, sibling, a close relative, friend, neighbour, or work colleague.

When lives are changing, there are lots of questions. Hospice Quinte has created a list of resources to help.
