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.
There are a number of ways that you can support the construction of Chapman House, including a limited number of naming opportunities. Use the button below for a list of sponsorships that have been claimed and those still available.
If you prefer not to donate online, you can visit our volunteer office on Carneys Lane in Owen Sound, or contact us by email or phone.
Details and directions available below.
The 2016 Build a Home for Hospice Campaign is a one-time capital request to residents, businesses, organizations and service clubs across the region to support the construction of Chapman House. Your donation will make a difference.
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.
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.
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.
