Care in residence for end of life

During the final weeks of life, individuals may move into our hospice residence for 24/7 on-site hospice palliative care. A doctor’s referral is required for admission. Please note that our residence is located at the McCall Centre for Continuing Care until the end of June due to renovations.

What to expect

Our hospice centre is undergoing significant renovations from January to mid June. During this time, individuals in our care have been temporarily relocated to The McCall Centre for Connnuing Care, 140 Sherway Drive. Our team has worked to provide a comfortable space. Our Administrative offices remain at 220 Sherway Drive during the renovation.

Individuals and their families who have questions about care during this time can speak to Lauren Favalaro, Admissions (416) 626-0116 x252.

The renovation will increase capacity, provide additional comforts, and improve the quality and safety of care. It includes:

  • Upgrades to the two temporary hospice rooms providing 12 fully functional hospice rooms
  • New air conditioning system, an infection control isolation room, and an improved residential call response system
  • Enhanced care team station and locked medication preparation room
  • New family care suite and family shower room

Care is provided through a transdisciplinary team approach consisting of palliative care physicians, registered nurses (RNs), registered practical nurses (RPNs), personal support workers (PSWs), specially trained volunteers and a nutrition consultant whose primary focus of care is on pain and symptom management and personal care.

Companion volunteers are available in the residence to offer companionship, which may include conversation, arts and crafts, and reading.

Our on-site pharmacy ensures your medication needs will be met accurately and quickly.

Spiritual care is the exploration of beliefs, values, hopes and sources of resilience. It can be helpful whether you practise a religion or not.

Our wellness services can help promote relaxation, calm, and improved sleep. The therapies are delivered by trained hospice volunteers who are certified in their respective treatment(s).
