Our Mission

Our team focuses on creating a safe and accessible space to understand and navigate grief and provide opportunities for individuals and families to talk about end of life. We advise that everyone plan for end of life, consider their wishes, and pursue quality of life each and every day.

Hospice Is…

Hospice is a building, a belief and an approach. It focuses on improving the quality of living and quality of dying of people and their families when facing, serious illness, death and grief. In Colchester East Hants, Hospice-Palliative Care strives to provide physical, psychological, social, spiritual and practical support. Hospice is a registered charity and 100% of our fundraising activity supports programs throughout our community.

Our Values

  • We value the needs and wants as identified by the people we serve.
  • We appreciate the value of life and the natural process of death.
  • We recognize the need to address people and their families’ suffering, expectations, needs, hopes and fears while facing serious illness, death and grief.
  • We believe that all services need to be inclusive of the community and not limited by spiritual beliefs, gender, race or age.
  • We believe care is provided when the person and/or family is willing to accept it.
  • We believe that quality of life is defined by each person with which we work.
  • We believe that all relationships with other people (people requiring service, partners, colleagues) need to be based on respect and dignity for each other.
  • We believe that all people with whom we work have the right to privacy and confidentiality.
  • We believe that in developing healthy skills and attitudes to support those people dying in our communities, our communities will become stronger.

  • High Quality: Clearly defined standards of practice, integrity, respect and compassion.
