Durham Region Hospice’s mission is to provide support, comfort in a caring and compassionate home-like environment to individuals and their families facing end-of-life illness.
To create two fully operational residential hospice care centres in Durham Region – a 10 bed facility in Whitby and a 9 bed facility in Clarington.
Residence and services are client-centered, providing continuity and consistency of care that is accessible and responsive to a client’s wishes, concerns and priorities. We also act as an advocate for the client’s needs.
Respect for the client’s values and beliefs, choices, experiences, and diversity of individuals and their families, friends and caregivers are essential in all we do.
Our services focus on caring, celebrating life, and honouring the dying.
Respectful collaboration is integral in improving the quality of life for individuals facing death or bereavement.
Contribution of members within the community as volunteers is essential to the holistic care of people facing the final stages of illness, and for the aftercare for those going through the bereavement process.
