Becoming a resident at The Kensington Hospice starts with a referral for palliative care by your family doctor, a hospital or the local Community Care Access Centre (CCAC). Individuals over the age of 19 with a valid Ontario Health Card (OHIP) and a life expectancy of three months or less can access hospice services.
The Palliative Care Common Referral Form is completed by your healthcare provider. It can be faxed directly to the Hospice’s Intake and Residential Care Nurse or sent through your local CCAC. The hospice fax number is: 416-963-9466.
Once the form is received, the nurse will contact you and, when a bed is available, arrange a visit in your home or hospital room and do an assessment to see if The Kensington Hospice can meet your needs. You will be asked to sign consent forms. Please note, the demand for The Kensington Hospice Residential Program is high and waiting lists are common.
