French Language Services

Nipissing Serenity Hospice (NSH) recognizes the bilingual (French and English) characteristics of the Nipissing and East Parry Sound Districts, and the compelling benefits for residents, clients, and their families to communicate in their own language when receiving care from caregivers. The Hospice is committed to actively offering its services in French to its residents, clients, and families in accordance with the French Language Services Act.

All compliments regarding French language services should be shared with the French Language Services Program Coordinator (Administrative Coordinator) in person at reception, by phone at 705-995-3377, or by email at to ensure that they are documented and shared with the individual in question.
