Our programs serve those who are ill, their families and caregivers, and anyone who is grieving a loss. We also provide community education and specialty training for those who are working in palliative care.
Our services, both professional and volunteer, are offered at no charge and are provided in home, in hospital, in long term care and residential hospice settings.

At Hospice of Waterloo Region, we understand those living with life-threatening illness often experience social isolation. It’s why our “Day Away” program is an essential part of our support services.
Hospice’s “Day Away” program, is just that – a day away from the ordinary for our clients. A day away from medical appointments, tests and treatments. A day away from staring at the same four walls. A day away from lamenting about how disease has made such an tremendous impact on not only their life, but the life of their family as well.
A “Day Away” is an opportunity for those living with a life-threatening illness, to feel a connectedness to others who are in a similar situation, to meet new people, try something new, share a meal together.
Any contribution is appreciated, but a gift of $150, will support a hot meal for the participants of the Day Program.
Thank you for your generosity!
