Best Non-Profit/ Foundation
In 2007 the East Haldimand Hospice Inc. became incorporated as a registered charity with the purpose of supporting the delivery of Free hospice palliative care in the communities of Dunnville, Cayuga, Hagersville, Jarvis and Caledonia. East Haldimand Hospice Inc. aims to make life better for people living with worsening illness and their families. The unique needs of a person with the diagnosis and their families become more challenging as the disease progresses and treatment options dwindle.
Access to hospice palliative care eases stress and provides comfort.
Choosing hospice palliative care does not mean giving up hope; it may be hope takes on new meanings.
Delivering hospice palliative care requires a Cooperative Community Effort.
