Hospice Halifax will provide community-based care in a supportive, compassionate, home-like environment for people nearing the end of their lives.
A team of experienced professionals and trained volunteers will provide physical, social, spiritual, and emotional care for residents and their families. Residents will have support to live their remaining lives as fully and as comfortably as possible. Family members will have support to step away from their primary caregiver tasks and to focus instead on self care and their relationship with the resident.
Development has started on a state-of-the-art 10-bed residential hospice on Francklyn Street in Halifax which we expect will open in late 2018. Hospice will be available to all residents of Halifax Regional Municipality at no cost. We are grateful to our donors, volunteers, dedicated staff, and other like-minded organizations that make this critically important service possible.
