A journey of comfort and celebration for

lives well lived

Patients and families

Through compassionate care and support, we help our patients experience the best quality of life possible. We support families through the caring of a loved one facing a life-limiting illness.

Bereavement services

We offer grief and bereavement support by counsellors and trained volunteers for families and individuals, including children and teens.

Education & Research

We provide courses, publications and clinical tools to help health care professionals facilitate better outcomes for patients and families.

Quality end-of-life care for all

Our mission is to enhance the quality of life for those facing life-limiting illness, death and bereavement through patient and family-centred care, education, research and advocacy.
