It seems to be a never ending series of appointments , treatments and caregivers flowing in and out of one's home. The illness takes over; it becomes a way of life, it becomes a new identity. Whether it is the person walking the journey of a life changing illness or family ; the whole situation is exhausting.

Experiential Day Hospice is about sparking transformation, inspiring a focus on living big, living fully present and living in the moment. "If you are telling me I am dying, I am not dead yet!" Each day is an exciting adventure into culture, entertainment and fun. Strangers, perhaps when they enter for the first time. Friends from the first day; sharing legacy an experiences. Looking for an opportunity to leave your illness at the door? Experiential Day Hospice is your chance!

 

Experiential Day Hospice is built on the following values:

  • Hope: Hope structures your life in anticipation of the future and influences how you feel in the present.

  • Community: Universally there are only two things that every person has in common - we come into this world and we go out of this world. Just as it takes a village to raise a child it takes a village (quoting Bono) how we care for the sick and dying is surely a limitless test of our humanity. Just as we fight for equality in life, so we should fight for equality in dying.

  • Acceptance: supporting the power of choice and control over how an individuals choose to life their life in the face of their death- free of judgement.

  • Confidentiality: respecting the choices of our diagnosed client in a safe environment.
