These are just a few questions our Hospice Counsellors address with individuals and their families living with serious illness or facing end of life.

How do I talk to people about my illness?​
What will I want or need at the end of my life?
What help is available to me?
What decisions will I have to make?
How can I let my family and care team know my wishes?​
If I am ill, will I be a burden to others?
Is it possible to die at home?  

At Heart House Hospice, the counsellors provide psychosocial and emotional support, information, education, and advocacy that enables individuals and families to manage, cope and prepare for end-of-life.

We can help facilitate discussions about the psychological, social, spiritual and practical issues that are important to you and your family.

Having conversations about end of life-planning is often difficult but with the skillful support of our counsellors, we hope to ease your anxieties in talking to your loved ones about your wishes.

In addition, we offer a variety of services to support you and your loved ones. These services include:

  • Spiritual care
  • Visiting volunteers
  • Spiritual support
  • Weekly day program (Social Connexions)
  • Wellness programs including relaxation and complementary therapies
  • HUUG children’s program and bereavement support.

You matter. We listen. We are here to help.
