Tree of Remembrance and Winter Programs

Every December, Hospice Wellington holds our annual Tree of Remembrance fundraiser, where you can make a contribution in return for a Christmas ornament of your choice.  For only $10, you can hang the ornament on one of our display trees OR you can take it home to put on your tree or give as a gift to someone special. We welcome you to write a note on the ornament’s tag to remember your loved ones.

All proceeds from this fundraiser go to support the many programs and services that we offer here at Hospice Wellington, both in the residence and in the community.

We support individuals with a life-limiting illness through one-to-one support, support groups, in-home palliative services and end-of-life compassionate care in our residence.

We rely heavily on donations to support our programs and services, but also on the commitment and hard work of our many volunteers.

TESTIMONIALS

The Hospice was better than we could have imagined on every level and we were so grateful to them for allowing my dad to pass in such a dignified and comfortable manner. 

Son of client in residence

I think of my experience at Hospice Wellington “like a warm nest” built by the love of a caring community; there to house and nurture the weak in need of shelter. The nest surrounds the dying and their family, providing a place to be cared for, to sustain and keep us, until our loved ones fly away. Having had time in the nest leaves us strong enough to fly on our own…
