Residential Home, Under Construction

The Hospice Residential Home Finds Temporary Home at Hôtel-Dieu Grace Healthcare

Windsor, ON -  On Tuesday, September 18th, 2018 The Hospice of Windsor and Essex County will be temporarily moving their eight bed residential program to a unit which will be leased from Hôtel-Dieu Grace Healthcare on Prince Road.

This temporary relocation is a result of the Hospice Residential Home being under construction.

This construction, which started in the Spring of 2018, is being completed with the hopes of adding:

•           two additional suites

•           two NEW family support rooms

•           the upgrading of all common rooms

During this construction phase, Hospice patients will be located on 2North of the Dr. Y. Emara Centre for Healing Aging.  Hospice is committed that all Hospice Residential Home staff and volunteers will move with the patients and all current Hospice support services will continue to be offered at this NEW leased location with no disruption of service to and no cost to patients and families as per the Hospice Philosophy.

This re-location is estimated to last until November 30th, 2018. HDGH and Hospice are committed to providing the best care to the patients of Windsor-Essex and are working together to make this transition as easy as possible for all involved.

The Hospice Residential Home (HRH) is a home-like palliative care facility. Located in the Hospice Villiage, the HRH has eight patient beds, with all rooms designed as suites to accommodate patients and their families at no cost to the family. Each room has a private washroom, pull out double bed, fridge and private balcony. Patients in the HRH are cared for by nurses, personal support workers, palliative physicians and volunteers. We do our best to make your stay at the HRH as comfortable and peaceful as possible.

The Hospice Residential Home is open to individuals and families who could benefit from care in an environment other than their home. Individuals may wish to leave their homes, or their care may overwhelm a family’s ability to manage within the home. The HRH is also appropriate for patients who may not have caregivers able to assist them at home.

Patients who wish to stay at the Hospice Residential Home must be referred by their physician. We work closely with the Erie-St. Clair Community Care Access Centre (CCAC) who administers the referral process, determining which patients will be eligible for stays and the priority of their need. Admission is based on the CCAC’s determination of eligibility and the Hospice’s ability to accommodate patients.
