Who we are

About Us

Beth Donovan Hospice provides compassionate support and professional care to individuals and their families as they journey through the challenges of life-limiting illnesses and end-of-life transitions. Whether in a home or hospital setting, the experienced staff and trained volunteers of Beth Donovan Hospice give of themselves to ensure that the families receive the assistance, support and guidance they need.

Founded through the compassion and vision of generous volunteers, Beth Donovan Hospice has been providing services to the community for over 20 years in the North Grenville - Merrickville area and more recently in the communities of South Ottawa.

BDH serves all members of the community who have any life limiting illness; a terminal diagnosis is not the exclusive criterion. Medical care is not offered by Beth Donovan Hospice; however, we do attempt to co-ordinate our services with those offered by other agencies so that clients receive the maximum benefits.
