The Hospice Of Waterloo Region Experience
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.
“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.”

HWR Land Acknowledgement
We would like to acknowledge that Hospice of Waterloo Region is based on the ancestral and traditional territories of the Anishinaabe (Ah-nish-nah-bay), Haudenosaunee (Ho -deh-no-show-nee) and Attawandaron (At-ta-won-da-ron)/Neutral people.
Today, this gathering place is home to many First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples and acknowledging them reminds us of our important connection to this land where we live, learn and work.
As citizens, we have a responsibility for the stewardship of this land. We invite you to join in consideration of our collective role in the stewardship of Mother Earth and in the important process of reconciliation.
