Beth Donovan Hospice (BDH) recognizes the need for and value of residential beds in this community. BDH is working with the Champlain Local Health Integrated Network (LHIN) on a proposal re residential beds for those who are requiring end of life care and are unable to remain at home.
Referrals are accepted from clients (self-referral), family members, friends, clergy, physicians and other health care professionals or agencies. A referral can be made via phone, in person or via fax. Beth Donovan Hospice does not accept referrals sent via email for security purposes.
We currently receive funding from the Champlain LHIN as well as through various fundraising events and donations. We are currently working with the LHIN to explore the possibility of adding residential hospice beds for our community. We recognize that not everyone can remain at home for end-of-life (EOL) care, and that an acute care hospital is not necessarily an ideal option. BDH wants to ensure that the model for residential hospice will meet the needs of the community and be sustainable.
Currently, there are 3 annual fundraising event:
