The Residential Hospice of Grey Bruce

how you can help

The hospice minimizes suffering in the final days of life, in a setting that feels like home.

Within our temporary space, the Hospice has provided expert end-of-life care to nearly 300 patients from across Grey and Bruce, while supporting the families in their journey. In the spring of 2016 construction began on a permanent, free-standing residential hospice to be named Chapman House.


The new community-owned, community-operated facility will be able to serve more loved ones from our region, in a space purpose-built for the care we provide. But because there is no government funding available to support the construction of hospices in Ontario, this project will be funded entirely by donation. Your support, even a thoughtful gift of $50 or $100, will help us meet our goal.
