Enhancing Services For People In Our Community

Recently, the Boards of Directors of Hospice Waterloo Region and Lisaard & Innisfree Hospice voted to explore the possibility of becoming one hospice organization that would serve the whole region. The goal of exploration is to determine whether together we would be able to further enhance services for people in our communities.

This possibility emerged from conversations that the Boards have been having for the past year. In these discussions the opportunities

  • to create a more unified voice
  • decrease confusion in the community
  • improve capacity
  • use resources more effectively

were all drivers in moving to explore this possibility.

Opportunities to improve our service and our capacity as well as use our resources more effectively are ones we are interested in pursuing.  This is a natural progression in a dialogue we have been having Board-to-Board for the past year.  We are excited about taking this next step in exploration.

Our Boards are driven by providing the best hospice care for the Kitchener, Cambridge, Waterloo region.  We believe this exploration will help us determine whether we can do this better as one organization.  We look forward to learning more about one another through this exploration phase.

Continued Excellence in Care & Support

While we go through this initial phase of exploration, our programming, and services will remain the same.  The community can expect continued excellent care and support.

We are committed to keeping people informed and engaged throughout this process and welcome any questions, feedback, or ideas you may have.
