End-of-Life Care

Hospice Dufferin Staff and Volunteers reach out to our clients wherever they are located...... family home, hospital, long-term care or retirement home. We promote people enjoying life until the very end.  We believe that a well supported family is able to grieve easier knowing that their loved one had their wishes filled.
