Our work is made possible thanks to financial support from community members and businesses, our committed volunteers, and our dedicated staff and board members. We don’t receive funding from the government or the health care system but we do work closely with the Saskatchewan Health Authority. We receive referrals for people who need our services, and we advocate for people in palliative care.
What is hospice care?
Hospice care supports individuals approaching end of life and their families. It is holistic care that focuses on quality of life by ensuring the individual’s physical symptoms are looked after and their emotional and spiritual needs are met so they can die in comfort and with dignity.

No. We do not provide any form of medical care. That type of care is typically provided by the Palliative Home Care program of the Saskatchewan Health Authority. We do not do physical transfers or lifting of clients and will call Home Care if clients require that kind of service.
