Five Things you need to know about…. Hospice Simcoe

This month we are honoured to share with you the important work of Hospice Simcoe.

Hospice Simcoe provides palliative care to patients with life-limiting illnesses and offers support to their loved ones and caregivers.

 

#1 Hospice Simcoe is accepting volunteer applications

Hospice Simcoe Volunteers

Volunteers founded Hospice Simcoe and they continue to play an important role in patient care, bereavement support, administration, and governance. The Volunteers bring warmth, compassion, and support to Hospice Simcoe and the families that they serve.

Currently, Hospice Simcoe is accepting applications for all Volunteer roles. If interested, more information can be found on in the volunteer section of the website.

Applications can be completed online here.

 

#2 You can donate to Hospice Simcoe

Hospice Simcoe’s services are provided to the community at no cost. Big or small, every single donation to Hospice Simcoe helps to operate their Residence on Penetanguishene Road and provide bereavement support through their Community Programs. Hospice Simcoe is grateful to those who make them their charity of choice.

Donations can be made over the phone, in person or online.
