About Hospice Niagara

Hospice Niagara helps people and their families live well from the time of diagnosis with a terminal illness through to end of life. We also support children, youth and adults who are grieving a death.

This specialized care is provided with compassion and dignity at home and in our hospice residence, free of cost.

Hospice Niagara’s programs and services support four pillars of care:

Living Well at Home: In-home medical, emotional and social supports are provided right from the time of diagnosis with a terminal illness to help improve quality of life and well-being for everyone, including family and friends.

Living Well at Hospice: People near end of life and their families are provided care, compassion and dignity in our 10-bed hospice residence in St. Catharines.

Living Well with Grief: Children, youth and adults can explore feelings of grief and loss, in a safe and supportive space.

Living Well as a Caregiver: Education and group support programs help family caregivers find healthy ways to cope and care for themselves, while they care for others.

Our Impact

Compassion and dignity are at the heart of hospice care.

Our hospice residence offers the warmth and comfort of home, but with all the medical and emotional supports people and families need when coping with death, dying, grief and loss.

You do not have to do this alone. We are here to help.

When the time is right to move into our hospice residence, our team of palliative care professionals will listen to your goals and wishes, and care for your physical, emotional and spiritual needs.

Often times, family members tell us they feel a weight of responsibility lifted off their shoulders when they can simply spend time together as family and friends again.

At hospice, we want everyone to feel at home.

How your gift will be used

In life, we will all leave behind pieces of ourselves for other people to honour and remember us by.

This is our legacy.

Leaving a gift to Hospice Niagara directly or through your will ensures your legacy lives on in the care and compassion provided for people and families.

One such person is Bernie Bodogh, a 59-year-old father who received end-of-life care in our hospice residence. Before he died, he wanted to dance with his daughter, Samantha, one last time.

One afternoon, in Hospice Niagara’s courtyard garden, Bernie watched his daughter marry the love of her life and then shared a final, father-daughter dance as a small gathering of family and friends dabbed wet eyes.

Supporting Hospice Niagara through a legacy gift means people like Bernie can live fully until their last breath.

A legacy gift is one way for you to make the best use of your assets, take advantage of available tax credits and create a charitable gift for today and for the future.

We encourage you to speak with your legal and financial advisors when considering making a legacy gift. Your advisors can help you determine the most suitable gift to meet your financial and philanthropic goals.
