Residential Hospice of Grey Bruce

http://www.greybrucehospice.com

The Residential Hospice of Grey Bruce offers an alternative for residents of Grey and Bruce Counties who do not wish to die at home or in the hospital. The community-run hospice cares for patients and their families who are dealing with a terminal illness, providing comfort, support and pain management. Patients are able to die with dignity, in a home-like setting. We're participating in Giving Tuesday because events like this are very important to the care we deliver. Our service is only possible through a strong connection to our community. In Ontario, residential hospices are only funded by the provincial government for a portion of their operation – making their contribution specific to the costs associated with the salaries for nursing and personal support work at the bedside. This means all other aspects of our operation are supported by the community. For Giving Tuesday we'll be on the air, twitter, facebook and our website promoting our unique contribution to care in Grey and Bruce Counties.
