"A hospice is to allow for dignity in death. Many would like to die at home but, particularly in our aging society, the caregiver is not always capable. Hospice is a community, not a building, where there are those who care for the dying and their family not only with skill but also with great empathy and heart."
The Northumberland Hospice Care Centre Capital Campaign
The goal is comfort, not cure, from diagnosis through death and bereavement – in a beautiful place with hospice palliative care that includes all family members – a homelike setting, where people and their families will take the lead but be supported with care, compassion, and expertise – every step of the way.
This is a project that will touch everyone in our community. – Gord and Patti Ley, Co-chairs, Honouring the Journey Campaign
