How we can help
When faced with a life-threatening illness it is helpful for you and your loved ones to think about and share your wishes for future health care in the event you are unable to do so. Click here for more information and resources to help with your Advance Care Planning.
Community Hospice Care
Hospice Care Ottawa provides emotional support and practical help when you are facing a life-threatening illness and living at home. Our nurses will visit you at home to provide assessment and referral information and coordinate in- home visits from hospice trained volunteers.
Support for caregivers is also available.
Day Hospice programs are available at three sites across Ottawa which provide care and support in a home-like environment for you to have a 'day away' and provide respite to your caregivers.
Residence Hospice Care
When being at home is no longer possible Hospice Care Ottawa provides 24 hour care in a home-like and peaceful environment. Hospice Care Ottawa has residential beds in several locations in Ottawa where a multidisciplinary team provide physical, emotional and spiritual support. Friends and families are welcomed. A referral to Residential Hospice is made through your health care provider.
