Our Cause

THIS IS THE HOUSE THAT LOVE BUILT.

2019 was a big year for Hospice Halifax through the generosity of Feeling the Love supporters, our spectacular volunteers and community, we were able to realize our organizations dream of opening the very first hospice in Nova Scotia. Since our opening in May 2019, we have been able to deliver on our mission of providing the very best end-of-life care possible to families in our community, and are on track to serve 150 families within our first year of operations.

From around-the-clock professional nursing care, to warm, inviting spaces, good food, licensed counselling and social work support, and on site family accommodations, Hospice Halifax offers all its services without associated fees. The hospice residence is an inclusive space where patients and their families receive personalized, dignified end-of-life care.

Every year, we will welcome about 150 patients who have a terminal illness and are nearing the end of their lives. About 1,800 community members – patients’ extended family, friends and colleagues – will also have access to support at hospice.

HOSPICE HALIFAX

Hospice Halifax is a compassionate and supportive community of staff members, volunteers, and donors dedicated to helping patients and families experience the best end of life possible. To learn more, please visit www.hospicehalifax.ca
