Help us add touches of kindness, warmth and hospitality to the new Gies Family Centre Hospice Waterloo Region. 

Thank you for your interest in purchasing a virtual housewarming gift!

As we prepare to move into our new home, we want to make sure it is as comfortable as possible for those in need of hospice care in Waterloo Region.

So we are hosting a Virtual Housewarming Party, and we are inviting everyone in the community to get involved! Join us in Making Hospice a Home.

Virtual Housewarming Gift



Making Hospice a Home
dinner plate setting with hearts

Our fondest memories are often those associated with mealtime. Whether it’s an everyday meal with our family, or a gathering to celebrate a special occasion, shared meals are where memories are made!  At Hospice, we want to make every meal feel special. 

Meals will be delivered on trays with placemats and cloth napkins and served on beautiful dinnerware. Special occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries, baptisms and even weddings can still be celebrated within a Hospice setting. Hospice staff and volunteers will do whatever it takes to make your mealtimes and celebrations special and memorable!

Your donation will be used to purchase:

  • Dinnerware – Dinner Plates, Bread Plates and Bowls
  • Serving Platters, Bowls and Utensils
  • Tea Cups, Coffee Mugs, Glassware
  • Silverware
  • Bud Vases, Placemats, Cloth Napkins, Tablecloths

*Note: As the items need to be new and of a commercial-grade and due to COVID-19 concerns, we are unable to accept direct donations of these items. Please consider sponsoring a new item in this category.

There are a total of nine different types of housewarming gifts. Learn about the other categories.

The Experience of Being at Home at Hospice

For many who come to a hospice residence, it is a highly emotional time. When a family and their loved one arrives, the staff and volunteers provide immediate care and support. By creating a welcoming and comfortable setting, we give families a place to feel safe and, most importantly, to feel at home. Hear about Merv and Sandi’s experience with hospice.
