End of life doesn’t mean end of care.
Toronto Commandery Hospice supports the Greater Toronto Area with compassionate and dignified end-of-life care for those living with a life threatening illness and their families.
Hospice care is provided free of charge.
We believe all people are entitled to care and compassion in their lives. With the support of donors we coordinate services to relieve suffering and improve the quality of life for clients and their families free of charge.
Grieving the death and/or imminent death of a loved one can leave us struggling. We provide a wide spectrum of inclusive, compassionate, confidential programs to support you.
Our future services include 10-bed, residential hospice and Centre of Excellence provides hospice-palliative 24 hour care services.
Home is often the preferred place for care. Our services are guided by your needs to provide individual care where it’s most comforting.
Toronto has a serious shortage of hospice care beds.
The need for hospice support is one of today’s enduring healthcare challenges, especially in the City of Toronto. A population the size of Toronto, 2.8 million people, needs close to 200 hospice beds. We have only 20. (According to Report by Attorney General, 2015) Toronto Commandery Hospice's goal is to provide more hospice beds for those living at home who do not wish to die in hospital.
