Hospice Huronia – Tomkins House



Above all else, we believe that Living Life to its fullest each and every day, with compassion, dignity and respect is what our community needs.

At Hospice Huronia, we believe that those living with a life-limiting illness and those who love them, deserve exceptional support every step of the way.

In the community, our volunteers provide respite so that caregivers can step out and know that their loved one has a compassionate visiting volunteer to keep them company.

We know that grief begins long before an actual death happens therefore we offer individual and group programs to help.

Most people want to die in their own home, in the own bed however, most Canadians will end up in a Hospital. Often in the Emergency Room and we believe that Tomkins House Hospice offers an option that brings together 24/7 medical care in a homelike environment. While our patients receive great care, their loved ones return to their role as family. They are able to spend whatever time they have, sharing memories and stories as we manage the pain & symptoms of their loved one.

Our Impact

Caring not curing.

Hospice can’t cure our patients but we can work with your doctor to help manage your pain and symptoms.

We can support your family and friends who are struggling knowing that their time with you is limited.

We can keep you out of our Hospital system, whose focus is on treating people and sending them home. Our focus is on living every day until you die with respect, compassion & dignity.

We can support your caregivers who want to keep you at home but as your care becomes too difficult for them to manage on their own, we can help.

We can save healthcare dollars as our model of care is very cost effective. We get 50% funding from the Ministry of Health & Long Term Care and generous donations from our community make up the rest.

These donations mean that there is no cost for our patients and clients for any of our programs or services.
