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.
