Hospice Mississauga provides compassion, support, and advocacy that lessens the distress of serious illness and loss on individuals, families, and the community.
Located in Mississauga, Ontario, Hospice Mississauga has been opening doors in Mississauga and Brampton since 1985. Whether it’s the front door to our day programs or at the homes where we provide care, every door we open is an opportunity to make a meaningful difference in someone’s life. For more than 38 years, our professional and compassionate team has delivered on our promise to ensure that people live their final days with grace and dignity. And we deeply understand the impact that an end-of-life experience can have on a person’s family and caregivers.
Throughout the palliative journey we offer spiritual support and access to wellness treatments like aromatherapy, therapeutic touch, and Reiki. And we are one of the few hospice organizations to offer a specialized program for children who are living in a home where someone they love is dying or has died. Finally, our bereavement team works with loved ones to provide support through loss and grief – sometimes even many years thereafter.
Our success is made possible by the generosity of our partners, donors, and the dedication of almost 200 volunteers. Donations to Hospice Mississauga bridge the gap between our exceptional level of care and the funding received from the Ontario Ministry of Health.
With your help, the extraordinary work of Hospice Mississauga will impact more lives in our communities and significantly increase the organization’s ability to provide compassion, support, and advocacy that lessens the distress of serious illness and loss on individuals, families, and the community. Thank you for supporting hospice palliative care in our community.
One of the only things in life we can be certain of is death and dying and at Hospice Mississauga, we are building compassion and we strive to make every moment matter. And if there is anything that the past two years has taught us it is that a little compassion goes a long way.
