“Thank you to the doctors, staff and volunteers at Hospice Wellington for the care you have shown me… the cup of tea, the soft-boiled egg, and for the many visits when the days seem long and I can’t get out of bed. Everything you do is always with such care and love.”

Dave, Resident

Hospice puts the client and their family gently at the centre of care and provides supports that respond to their needs. As a team with specialized training and skills, we are able to support all aspects of needs at end-of-life.

Our care is here because the story you and your family are living matters to us. If you need more information or have any questions, call us at 519-836-3921 or contact one of our staff below through email.
