Patients in Ontario have free access to hospice care, but the Ontario government provides modest financial support for the construction and operation of hospices. Hospice organizations must make up the shortfall through fundraising and community contributions. Thus, we need the whole community's support to build and operate Aboyne Rural Hospice.
Recent data indicates a current shortage of 9.2 hospice beds in Wellington County that our hospice will address.
Please support Aboyne Rural Hospice.
Aboyne Rural Hospice has partnered with Canada Helps to process and issue tax receipts for donations under $500 and transfer of securities.

Although my mother wished to die at home, accommodating her request proved challenging. We were out of our depth in appreciating and fulfilling her needs and pain management, especially when the nurse left for the evening. A hospice would have provided a better experience for all of us.
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.
