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.
Our visiting hospice program provides respite for caregivers and a volunteer to visit with hospice palliative care patients. We serve patients who are in the terminal stage of a life limiting illness. We visit in homes, hospital, and long term care facilities.
Our volunteers can provide up to four hours of service each week, to be scheduled as needed. They provide social, emotional, and practical support to the patient and their family, friends, and caregivers. Hospice Quinte Volunteers are trained and understand the importance of dignity, independence, confidentiality, beliefs, choices, faith and culture. These services are provided free of charge.
