Our Virtual Tour will guide you through the facilities
The Kensington Hospice provides care, comfort and relief of suffering at the end of life, all within a peaceful and calming environment.
By working in close partnership with Princess Margaret Hospital/University Health Network, the Kensington Hospice is able to provide the best care possible, making us a true Centre of Excellence.
We offer a range of different services, including pain control, symptom relief, skilled nursing care, social work support and bereavement follow up support. In the hospice, the same tailored care given to the individual is extended to their friends and family. All care is provided free of charge during the hospice stay.
Our focus is on improving quality of life and getting the most out of each day. Our home-like community setting provides an alternative to the institutional setting of the hospital, combined with the 24-hour care not available at home.
What to expect in Hospice Care:
- To be valued and given time
- To be treated with respect and dignity
- To be given your privacy
- To be responded to with empathy, especially when in distress
- To be listened to and for communication to be sensitive and honest
- To have your individual beliefs, lifestyle and culture recognized and respected
The approach we take to residential hospice palliative care is designed to provide maximum comfort and relief of suffering for all our patients. The 10-bed residence at the Kensington Hospice provides a home-like setting, to help you feel at home and at ease.
