A SPECIAL KIND OF CARE
Hospice palliative care is a special kind of health care for those who are in the advanced stages of a life-limiting illness, where the goal is to provide comfort and dignity, and the best quality of life for them and their family.
For over 10 years, Hospice Quinte has been planning to expand our services and address the need for a community-based Hospice Quinte Care Centre within our service area where we can provide this unique level of care. The need is now urgent and the time is right.
We are excited to announce the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care has approved us moving forward with a 6-bed Hospice Quinte Care Centre, with initial capital funding of $1.2 million, and has also committed ongoing operational funding. Our regional municipalities, also recognizing the need for such a facility, have generously pledged their support. The City of Quinte West has donated property for the facility, as well as $1 million in funding towards its construction. The City of Belleville has also generously committed another $1 million in project funding. This foundational support has allowed us to now move forward with this
long-awaited project which will provide our community with a much-needed option for palliative care services, close to home.
To bring this vision to reality, we have launched our $9.5M Heart & Home Building Campaign to support the construction of the new Hospice Quinte Care Centre. As we move into a very exciting time in our history, we are confident that with the community’s support, we will reach our destination, together.
