Care & Services

What is Hospice Palliative Care?

Hospice palliative care is aimed at relieving the suffering and improving the quality of life for persons who are living with or dying from an advance illness.  This care includes pain and symptom management in conjunction with social, psychological, spiritual and practical support.  Hospice care celebrates life and regards dying as part of the normal process of life.  

Our team aims to meet the individualized and unique needs of our residents all while offering a support system to aide in the resident and families ability to cope during their illness and throughout their grief journey.

Resident Accomodations

At Nipissing Serenity Hospice, each resident has their own private room in which they can individualize to represent their own unique culture, personality and family unit.  You are welcome to bring in photos, memorabilia, and comfort items that will personalize the space and bring a sense of familiarity to your accomodations.

Comfort Measures

Our hospice is designed to create a peaceful, tranquil environment dedicated to cultivating rest for both our residents and their family members. 

We have a large spa tub available for our residents to immerse in to promote comfort as well as to alleviate the discomfort that can often accompany those who are bedbound.  Our spa room is complete with ambiant lighting, an in room towel warmer as well as a speaker system to play each individual's requested music as well as a lift system to increase accessibility to all residents.

There is also a roll-in shower available for residents in our tub room with assistive devices such as grab bars and shower seats to support each individuals preferances.  Please feel welcome to request a warm blanket to increase your comfort whenever you wish.
