Hospice Care Ottawa
Offering support at no cost during life-threatening illness and loss
Hospice Care Ottawa, an amalgamation of Friends of Hospice Ottawa and the Hospice at May Court, is a community based charitable organization. We offer services for clients and their loved ones to experience palliative and end-of-life care in a supportive and peaceful setting, surrounded by caring that reflects as closely as possible a comfortable home environment.
Delivery of our services is made possible through the support of dedicated staff and volunteers from the community.
