Pilgrims Hospice offers compassionate care for individuals living with a terminal illness, enhancing dignity and quality of life, until the end of life. With a whole-family approach, our programs also support caregivers and those grieving the death of a loved one.

“It’s a reality that the better support an individual receives, the better their quality of life – right to the end. And for those left behind, there’s an opportunity to journey through grief and bereavement in a healthy way.”
– Monica Robson, Pilgrims Hospice Executive Director

Year End Appeal – December 2018

This December, help raise $25,000 for the Hospice Home Visiting Program. Your generosity will truly help the growing numbers in our community, like Lasith, needing someone to share their hopes, dreams, worries and fears with as they near the end of life. With your help, Hospice Home Visits and Vigils are offered free of charge.
