“I donated in memory of my friend Lydia, who taught me more about grace and courage in death than I could ever learn in life.” – Jane Lapointe, Donor

Creating A Place Of Compassion & Care

Invest In Our Community

Ongoing annual funding for nursing and personal support worker costs for seven residential hospice beds will be provided by the South East Local Health Integration Network. The balance of capital and operational funding will come from community donations, special fundraising events, grants and planned gifts.

The Capital Campaign goal for our new residential hospice is $7.8 million. This figure is based on recent comparable investments made by other residential hospices in the Province of Ontario. The financial goal includes the building of the new structure, medical equipment and furnishings.

Your commitment will create a culture of strength, acceptance and support for the living and dying in our community and leave a legacy to ensure that individuals and their families and friends will have dignity, quality and meaning in their final days.

Residential hospices allow people to spend their last days where they choose and have access to the right care in the right place at the right time. Care for the living and dying can be delivered in a financially sustainable way outside of hospitals. Kingston is the largest community in Southeastern Ontario that does not have a residential hospice. The Time Is Now to invest in quality, financially sustainable hospice palliative care in a homelike setting.
