The Dorothy Ley Hospice is committed to raising awareness about hospice palliative care in the community.
The Dorothy Ley Hospice library has books and other resources on topics related to life-threatening illness, end-of-life care, death & dying and grief. We also have information specifically for children and youth.
Library services are offered free of charge to residents of all ages living in the Etobicoke area. Books and other materials can be checked out in person at the Hospice. It just takes a few minutes to set up a membership account.
Here are some helpful links to other sources of information related to hospice palliative care, cancer and bereavement.
