Nipissing Serenity Hospice is Now Accepting Palliative Patients
Nipissing Serenity Hospice celebrated its Grand Opening with an overwhelming attendance on January 11, 2020. Despite the terrible winter weather, the community showed up in droves to tour the facility.
Nipissing Serenity Hospice is thrilled to announce our team and volunteers are ready and we have space available for patients. Nipissing Serenity Hospice is a safe and welcoming, home-like space for palliative patients and their families, available at no cost.
Anyone, at any age,
that has been diagnosed with a life-limiting illness with a life prognosis of less than 3 months.
How much does it cost?
Our generous donors and partial funding, from the Provincial Government, have made it possible to offer our services free of charge to our patients.
How do I get a referral?
Speak to your Community Care Coordinator or Doctor who can facilitate the referral through the Home & Community Care Branch of the North East Local Health Integration Network.
Each residential, patient suite offers many amenities. Suites are bright, spacious and equipped with a daybed and comfortable recliner for family members who wish to stay close. Large windows in each suite overlook Chippewa Creek and Laurier Woods for a quiet, peaceful and private ambiance. Wheelchairs are available and beds can easily be wheeled to the common areas such as the dining room, family room, sacred room or screened in porch in the warmer weather. Family and loved ones are encouraged to participate in patient care as much as they wish and will have access to the facility 24 hours a day.
Our specialized palliative care team is accessible 24 / 7 and those who are without a doctor will have one assigned. Each patient will have a personalized care plan, designed to meet their need and requests.
“Our patients may only have a few days left and we are ready to provide comfort in their final days. We will accommodate our patient’s wishes whether that means a therapeutic bath, a family dinner cooked by our chef or have a beloved pet staying in the patient suite”, says Lindsay Campbell, Care Coordinator at Nipissing Serenity Hospice. “We are committed to our patients mind, body and spiritual care.”
