Ways to Give

Your Hospice of Windsor-Essex is blessed with the support of a caring community, but we need your help.

We must raise $1.9 million every year to continue providing compassionate care for our community.

100% of the care and support we provide is at no cost to patients, clients and their families.

Receiving only 50 percent of our operating funds from the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, we rely on donations from our community to fund the remaining 50 percent.

Where Does
the Money Go?


Two Hospice Residences

Our residences function as a home away from home, providing clinical expertise and care, while allowing families and loved ones to no longer be caregivers, and enjoy their time together.

Community Palliative Medicine Program

Our clinical teams provide care of patients, and their family members and caregivers, in the comfort of their own home setting.

Wellness Programs and Services

Palliative Care goes way beyond just clinical needs. We support patients and families with programs such as peer support groups, coping with illness, gentle exercise, and grief and bereavement throughout their journey.

The Hospice For Life Foundation and Services

Supporting our Foundation means supporting Hospice today, and tomorrow. With fundraising required each and every year, supporting our endowment helps us ensure our Hospice is here for our community, now, and into the future.
