This approach also provides relief for the many communities that have held back trying to establish their own hospice because of the estimated $10,000,000.00 needed to build a building, with beds.


A new Canadian Cancer Society report says critically ill Canadians are falling through the cracks when it comes to palliative care and calls for action to improve care across the country. Canada’s patchwork of palliative care services is costly and inconsistent, which is bad for patients and for the sustainability of our healthcare system. 


By becoming a player in a community, Home Hospice Association, in collaboration with other players including (and especially) the caregiver facilitates an approach to end of life care that is not reliant upon bricks and mortar but rather dignity, care and culturally sensitive human connection.  This is good for the patient, good for their family and good for the community.
