We contribute to high-quality hospice palliative care in Eastern Ontario. While we do not provide direct care to patients, we support the healthcare professionals who do. Our education sessions reach thousands of people on topics such as advance care planning, grief, practical caregiver training and self-care.

Building Capacity

Our training programs for clinicians, volunteers, and caregivers support the delivery of palliative care.

Thoughts from our participants

I came to this course to be a healthier caregiver, but I am leaving a happier caregiver. 

-  Practical Caregiver Training participant

Words fail for the presenter and experience. Very valuable guidance. I will continue to breathe in and out, and endeavour to move closer in compassion to the suffering around me. Thank you.

A focused and thought-provoking session. Informative, substantial and ended on a positive note with the legacy session…Bravo!

The entire day appeared to be quite successful! I feel like there was the right amount of options, the location was great, the speakers appeared to be carefully selected, the food was fantastic - all around a very well done conference!
