OUR STORY

Our residential hospice opened its doors and arms to the community on May 1, 2018 and provides a home-like setting where adults and children with life-limiting illnesses receive end-of-life care. Huron Shores Hospice empowers individuals to live well to the end of life by providing compassionate, dignified and holistic care, while supporting their family members and friends.

The core values that will guide our decisions and actions are compassion, dignity, collaboration, accountability, excellence, and respect for diversity.

Our dedicated and hard-working board of directors looks after the day- to-day operations of the hospice, as well as all fundraising efforts in our community. Huron Shores Hospice operates through local community fundraising and partial funding from the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care. The hospice suite is located in Tiverton Park Manor, in the Municipality of Kincardine and is open to residents of south Bruce County.  

Huron Shores Hospice is a charitable not-for-profit, volunteer-led, community-funded residential hospice, providing free quality end-of-life care, at no cost, to residents of Saugeen Shores, Kincardine and Huron-Kinloss and surrounding areas. Huron Shores Hospice also provides free programs for Grief Recovery, End of Life Doula services, Death Cafes and End-of-Life Planning workshops. Huron Shores Hospice is located within Tiverton Park Manor, at 24 King Street N, Tiverton, Ontario.

 

Community support is essential to our operations. We appreciate that it is a large ask to raise over $300,000 annually in the community. However, we believe that everyone has the right to die with dignity, in a home-like setting, surrounded by compassion, close to where they live, and that’s why we continue to do what we do.
