As its name suggests, like the hanging boughs of the willow, “we shall comfort, shade and shield our clients, volunteers and the community at large when life’s strong winds blow by.”


By The Willow is a free weekly retreat away from the myriad of doctors' appointments and treatment protocols that consume the life of a person diagnosed with a serious, life-limiting or life-threatening illness. While there is no way for anyone to change the prognosis of someone who is ill, we each have the power to help shift the focus off the illness and onto the concept of living fully in the present.


One of the comments most often heard amongst clients of a day hospice program is that they do not have to mask how they are feeling about what they are going through, because they are worried about how their “mortality” will worry and upset others.
