A Centre of Excellence. A Community of Care. A Network of Hope.
As an industry leader with proven expertise in delivering compassionate, quality, long-term and palliative care, we are proud to announce the opening of Margaret’s Place Hospice, a 10-bed hospice residence and community outreach centre on the grounds of St. Joseph’s Villa. Our hospice is a natural extension of our service to the community.
There is a shortage of hospice beds across the province of Ontario. Margaret’s Place meets a critical need in one of the most underserved regions – Dundas, Ancaster, West Hamilton, Flamborough and surrounding areas.
Margaret’s Place is the hospice community built, raising $13-million in the Gift of Love campaign to fund capital build costs. Going forward, the Ministry will cover 60 per cent of hospice operating costs. Our Foundation is committed to raise the outstanding funds, totaling approximately $550,000 per year.
Together with your support, we will ensure individuals, families and the community have access to the support, comfort and compassion they need when facing an end-of-life journey.
From grief and bereavement counselling, day wellness and community outreach support from the time of diagnosis to the provision of 24/7 care from our highly-skilled inter-professional team, we will support the work of caring for the physical, emotional, psychological, spiritual and cultural needs of our patients and families.
