and Support in
Your Own Community
You are not alone!
Hearing the news that your health or the health of a loved one has changed can be a frightening time. You probably have many questions.
It’s hard to take it all in and process it. It’s difficult to know what to do; to figure out what you need and where to turn.
Home Hospice North Lanark is here to help. Our Registered Nurse will come and meet with you and the people who support you and help you to develop a plan that suits YOU now and in the future. Our team will support you wherever your home is — in your private home, long-term care home, a care facility or hospital. All services are confidential and free of charge.
Our trained volunteers are sensitive listeners who can provide encouragement and companionship to clients and their caregivers.
Our support is offered in two ways:
- In the form of home visits. Sharing stories, taking part in music or art therapy, reading, doing puzzles, assistance with writing letters, or simply sitting together quietly are some of the activities that may take place during your visits. It will all depend upon what will support you best. (During the COVID-19 Pandemic visits are usually held over the phone or via video chat.)
- Through assistance with finding the community resources that you need.
Volunteer support can give caregivers a few hours to rest, to take care of errands, and to allow time for themselves so that they can maintain their ability to give care.
We are committed to help make every moment matter for you and your loved ones.
