Rolling Up Our Sleeves, Identifying Gaps, Filling Gaps
Home Hospice Association’s charitable missions were established to provide resources to qualified donees (Canadian Registered Charities; Municipalities) that feel they are not fully meeting the needs of their dying. “Wherever someone may lay their head we help make a hospice bed with compassionate care, founded in culturally sensitive human connection.” As an extension of someone’s “family”, caregivers are guests in their client’s home and are committed to treating all people with respect and acceptance.
HHA partners with agencies in a “community” (geographic, social, cultural or spiritual). These partners may currently offer hospice palliative care or because their clients are aging, may wish to expand their programs to extend length of care. Our key value of collaboration motivates HHA to roll up our sleeves to identify and fill service gaps with one or a combination of our seven core programs.
The greatest service gap is a lack of beds in long term care facilities, hospitals and residential hospices for the last days and weeks of life. HHA’s Hospice at Home program provides end of life care without needing to build more buildings.
Programs are delivered at no cost to clients, and we take an active role in the acquisition and delivery of needed resources (human and financial).
