Hospice Quinte changes the lives of the terminally ill, their families, and the bereaved for the better by providing individuals, their families, and caregivers with compassionate end of life care, by attending to their physical, psychosocial, and practical needs, and offering empathetic care to those who are grieving.

All Hospice Quinte programs and services are provided at no charge by compassionate and well-trained staff and volunteers.

Our service area includes Quinte West, Belleville, Tyendinaga Township, Deseronto, and the Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory.

We believe everyone in the Quinte Region, and their loved ones, should be provided with compassionate care, in the setting of their choice, and have their end of life journey treated with empathy and respect.

Hospice Residence Services

Hospice Quinte understands that those who are facing end-of-life and their families and loved ones need support.  We can care for people in the last three months of life at the Stan Klemencic Care Centre.

The centre is located at 1244 Old Highway 2, Belleville.  The care centre features six suites for people requiring end-of-life care.  Residents will be supported 24/7 by a specialized team of nurses and personal support workers, assisted by physicians, volunteers, and a variety of other staff.  A wide range of equipment is available in the facility to ensure safe and comfortable care is provided during these special moments.  The hospice facility is designed to accommodate smudging ceremonies, meal preparations, family meetings, and more.  There is no cost to the services provided.

Anyone can inquire about hospice residence services.  Admission is coordinated through Home and Community Care Support Services South East.
