The proposed ten-bed Aboyne Rural Hospice sits on the traditional territory of the Anishinaabe, recognized as Gitchi Mikinaak or Turtle Island, incorporating the treaty lands and territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, the traditional territory of the Haudenosaunee and the earlier Attawandaron.
We recognize this land has been and continues to be inhabited by other nations as Gizhe Mnidoo (The Creator) intended.
We are not the original stewards of these lands, but we honour a sacred trust to uphold the sanctity of Mother Earth and her people, ensuring their renewal for generations to come.
We are dedicated to establishing meaningful and collaborative relationships with Indigenous peoples and respecting traditional beliefs associated with the circle of life.

Several years ago, the care and support provided by the hospice made a huge difference in my mother's final days. They were not only professional but also compassionate and understanding. I am forever grateful for their services. I support the creation of a local hospice.
If you have any questions or would like to learn more about our proposed facility and the services we will offer, please don't hesitate to get in touch with us.
“Everyone should have access to dignified end-of-life care that respects the wishes of the patient and their loved ones.”
