Care at End of Life

Every Canadian has the right to good, professional, community-based palliative care at end of life.

Nipissing Serenity Hospice believes that every patient has the right to choose the type of palliative care they wish to receive at the end of life. Nipissing Serenity Hospice will respect the patient’s choice of care and the patient’s choice of location for this care.

Nipissing Serenity Hospice neither encourages nor discourages any option for care over another, recognizing that one option may be pursued alongside another.

Nipissing Serenity Hospice recognizes that each individual holds their own values, beliefs and meaning behind their experience of living with a life limiting illness.

Nipissing Serenity Hospice endeavours to support each person in the options they consider as they approach end of life and the impact this may have upon them and their loved ones.

Nipissing Serenity Hospice recognizes that a person’s view on how their life should end is known to fluctuate when experiencing advanced illness.

We are here to support each person through their own process, as they define it.
