About The Hospice

There are four private rooms containing a washroom, telephone, entertainment system with cable and wireless internet, as well as ceiling lifts, electric beds and home-like furniture. The hospice is air-conditioned and all the bedrooms are of equal size.

A lounge provides a relaxing area for visiting, reading and dining. There are televisions and assorted media equipment for your enjoyment in the lounge. We ask that this area be kept free of music and loud noise except during hospice-organized events.

The hospice also has a unique sacred space, a counselling room and a large, multipurpose resource room. Families, guests and patients may use a small kitchenette for their individual needs.
