Project Description

Visiting Hospice

Hospice Quinte is committed to protecting the health and safety of everyone in our community. We also understand that individuals facing a life-threatening illness, and their caregivers, still need our companionship and support… now more than ever.

While our Visiting Hospice program has been temporarily suspended until physical distancing is no longer recommended, Hospice Quinte volunteers are still able to provide social and emotional support to patients by the telephone. Our volunteers are specially trained, and understand the importance of dignity, independence, confidentiality, beliefs, choices, faith and culture.

Caregivers seeking support can register for Peer Telephone Caregiver Support or our new bi-monthly Cyber Caregiver Support emails.

All of Hospice Quinte’s services are provided free of charge.

Client in-take will be processed by telephone. Please contact Jan MacInnes, 613-966-6610 ext. 223 /, or Paul Mackay, 613-966-6610 ext. 225 /

Hospice Quinte will continue monitor the situation. We utilize information available from Hastings and Prince Edward Public Health, Hospice Palliative Care Ontario, the Ministry of Health, the Public Health Agency of Canada, and the World Health Organization to guide our decisions.
