SOUTHERN BRUCE GREY HOSPICE SATELLITE
The Residential Hospice of Grey Bruce is currently working on expanding its impact in the communities of Bruce & Grey with the announcement of the Southern Bruce Grey Hospice Satellite Project.
The creation of a second residential hospice location will allow us to provide palliative comfort care to an estimated 70-90 additional Bruce & Grey residents per year. This expansion will also enable residential hospice care to be available within a 45 minute drive of most Bruce & Grey residents.
