Hospice Muskoka has provided palliative and end-of-life support to residents of South and West Muskoka since 1995 through our outstanding volunteer programs. We have earned the trust of our community and have built a reputation of excellence for service delivery. Over our extensive history, we have formed partnerships with community organizations and local government.
Hospice Muskoka support services are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They are free of charge, to residents who own property in the Townships of Muskoka Lakes, Bracebridge, Gravenhurst, Georgian Bay and Wahta First Nation and Moose Deer Point First Nation and, by extension, their families regardless of where they live.
The Palliative Approach to Care is a method of providing care that honours the wishes of the person experiencing a life-limiting diagnosis. Hospice staff and volunteers walk beside a person and their loved ones throughout their journey. From the time of diagnosis, staying with them through the palliation period, end-of-life and the grief and bereavement process.
