What is the Nipissing Serenity Hospice?
The Nipissing Serenity Hospice is a home away from home where people of all ages are invited to spend their life’s final journey. It is a peaceful, caring and supportive environment that embraces all without discrimination. It is a place where quality end of life care is honored in a compassionate and holistic manner. It is a place where spiritual, psychosocial and physical needs will be met to provide relief of pain and suffering.
The objective of hospice care is to relieve suffering and improve the quality of life and dying for both the patient and their family. Like a family, our hospice is there for you night and day, holidays and weekends; around the clock.
Why our community needs a hospice:
Our community really needs a hospice, where the terminally ill will find the comfort and tranquility of a home-like environment, rather than a busy acute care hospital setting. While many dying patients would prefer to die at home, it often becomes difficult for family members to care for their dying loved ones at home.
In a hospice, the patient, family and friends can spend quality time together, in a way where everyone’s needs are supported in a compassionate manner.
Hospices already exist in most northern communities including Sudbury, Sault Ste. Marie, and Huntsville. It is now time for the Nipissing Region to build a hospice.
