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.

To the amazing staff at the Residential Hospice of Grey Bruce, thanks seem inadequate for providing Geoff with loving, professional care and the ability to leave this world with comfort and dignity.


Just a short note to let you know how much your care and support meant to us in our time of despair. You were all amazing. It really shows when someone has true compassion and a love for what they do. Your support for Ian and all our family is truly appreciated.

I can truly say from the bottom of my heart the volunteers at the hospice give the most loving care to it's patients and to the family members. I could not imagine not having a place like this for our loved ones to go in their final months.

Thanks to Pars & Guitars
Once more we find ourselves expressing our sincere appreciation to the entire team that made the second annual Pars & Guitars an incredible success. The charity golf tournament, in memory of Geoff Stevens, raised an incredible $33,000 for the hospice.

Days like the one we shared earlier this summer - with golf, music, memories, food, live & silent auctions and dancing - take a great deal of planning. We know months of effort went in to making that one day perfect, and it means so much to all of us at the hospice that you chose us to benefit from your hard work.
Savour the Spirits Update
The inaugural event hosted by the hospice was an incredible afternoon that profiled local foods, wines, beers and ciders from Grey and Bruce counties.

Food suppliers such as Casero’s, Grilled In Action, the Bleeding Carrot, Rosina’s and Cobble Beach will be offered samples of their cuisine. Breweries like Kilannan, Neustadt Brewery and MacLean’s Ales shared samples of their own. All of this was in support of the construction of Chapman House! We would like to thank all our vendors, sponsors and patrons who helped us raise $22,000 for our project!

Thanks to 92.3 The Dock for helping to spread the word about this tasty event!
Hospice staff at walk say their work a 'privilege'
Sunday's Hike for Hospice event in Harrison Park included hospice workers who said they all felt privileged and honoured to work where they can care for people in their dying days.

Mar Hackbart, who has been nursing for 42 years, has worked as a registered nurse for two years in the hospice. It's in Seasons retirement home until a stand-alone home is built. There she cares for residents – they're not called patients -- whose physical and spiritual needs, profound and basic, are addressed.
