Hospice Orillia volunteer appreciation 4We believe that the pain that comes with a life-limiting illness, and with dying, isn’t just physical.  We know that it also has to do with losing one’s independence, the stress that it puts on relationships and the loss of one’s dreams. We know that sometimes living with an illness means that your life gets turned upside down: financially, socially, and spiritually. We want to help you through these changes, so that you can have the best life possible, for as long as you’re alive!

People often think that hospice palliative care is only an option when there’s nothing more that can be done. Nothing could be further from the truth. Hospice palliative care is about living well…making sure that your pain and your symptoms are managed, while encouraging you to focus on the things that really matter, whatever that may be for you. It’s about making sure that caregivers are supported, so that they can live well too. It’s about helping people with their grief, so that they can experience life after loss.

Hospice Palliative Care is a philosophy of care, delivered by physicians, volunteers, nurses, spiritual counselors, friends and family. It can be provided at home, in hospitals, nursing homes or in freestanding hospice facilities.
