A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

It's been said that a picture is worth a thousand words. This idea could not be truer for those taking part in the New Beginnings program.


Wendy Julia Hiscox Day Program

The Wendy Julia Hiscox Day Program is offered to individuals living with life-limiting illness in the community and is available to residents of the DLH Residential Program.

Participants share experiences, support one another and engage in a variety of activities that promote their well-being. The Day Program also provides caregivers with a short-term break/.

The Day Program is offered each Wednesday at the Hospice from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. It offers activities such as: personal check-in time, games, expressive arts therapy, music therapy, general arts and crafts and complementary therapy such as Therapeutic Touch, Tai Chi or seated exercise and Guided Visualization.

A light breakfast and lunch are served. Participants determine when they can and can't attend on a weekly basis.

Eligibility Criteria

Anyone may refer to the Day Program. The Day Program Coordinator assesses the individual's eligibility based on:
  • living with a life-limiting illness
  • has given consent for the referral
  • can manage their own personal care and administer their own medication
  • agrees to ongoing assessment to determine eligibility to the program.
The Day Program has a maximum capacity of 15 participants. Once capacity is reached, individuals who are interested in attending the program will be placed on a first-come-first-serve waitlist. While on the waitlist and not receiving other Hospice services, the Day Program Coordinator will contact the individual at least once a month.

For more information about the activities and scheduled program, please contact Cher Curshen at (416) 626-0116 or by e-mail.
