Matthew’s House Hospice
6028 Highway 89
“Matthews House Hospice is dedicated to helping our clients live life fully every day by offering volunteer based services in home, in the residential hospice and throughout the community. Matthews House Hospice offers caring and compassionate services for individuals, their loved ones and care givers, who are taking a journey of a life limiting illness or grieving a loss.
Hospice care intends to improve the quality of life for those individuals living with a life-limiting illness or nearing the end of life. Our services are extended to the individual in need of care as well as their friends, family, caregivers and support groups. Hospice care may be right for you if you, or a loved one, have been diagnosed with a life-limiting illness. You do not have to be in the last days of life to take advantage of the services we offer; many of our community care clients and their family members come back to full health and recovery after battling an illness.
We offer support to individuals dealing with illness; caregivers of those who are ill; family members grieving illness or death; and those in their last days of life requiring palliative comfort measures either in-home or in our residence. Residential hospice care is available to all adults in their last days of life, and our community services are available to all ages, children included. We offer a variety of day programs, counselling, palliative care, and resident round-the-clock services for those suffering from illness and their families.
Support is available whether the individual is being cared for at their home, a Long Term Care Facility, or at Matthews House residence. After the death of a loved one, family members and friends are offered bereavement support in various ways.
Our services are broken down into 4 categories:
Residential care: Individuals reside at the hospice until end of life. The average length of stay is 8.5 days.
In-home palliative service: Offering support to caregivers and comfort measures for individuals at end-of-life.
Wellness programs: Holistic and healthy lifestyle programs to support those living with a life-threatening illness.
Bereavement support: Support for adults and children in their time of grief.”
