The Hospice Of Waterloo Region Experience
“You matter because you are you – and you matter right to the end of your life. We will do all we can not only to help you die peacefully, but also to live until you die.”
Hospice Waterloo Region holds as a core value that death is a natural conclusion of life and that hospice palliative care neither prolongs nor hastens a natural death. The model of care that is delivered by Hospice Waterloo Region is based on recognition that hospice palliative care is “Whole Person” care focused on supporting and improving the quality of life for persons who are living with or dying from advanced illness, and for those who are bereaved by the loss of a loved one.
