Who we are
Hospice Care Ottawa is a community-based charitable organization. We offer palliative and end-of-life programs and services to people living in the City of Ottawa. All services are offered at no charge to clients and their families. We provide Community Hospice Care programs such as in-home visits and day hospice, Residential Hospice Care, Bereavement Care and Caregiver Support. Our services meet the highest care standards in a setting that reflects as closely as possible a comfortable home environment.
Hospice Care Ottawa was formed in January 2013 by two founding organizations: Friends of Hospice Ottawa and The Hospice at May Court. This amalgamation provided increased awareness and funding for hospice care in Ottawa and allowed for efficient delivery of compassionate, high quality hospice care for those when and where they need it.
The delivery of our programs and services is made possible through the support of a small dedicated staff, many volunteers and generous donors. With only 60% of our funding being provided by the government, we need to raise the rest to ensure our programs continue.
