Hospice Georgian Triangle
Whether you have recently been diagnosed with a life-limiting illness, are supporting someone with a life-limiting illness, or have experienced the loss of a loved one, there are support services available to you at Hospice Georgian Triangle at no cost.
In the beginning
Since 1987, Hospice has provided care to families dealing with life-limiting illness in the communities of Collingwood, Wasaga Beach, Clearview Township and the
Town of Blue Mountains. The Hospice began as an all-volunteer, community-based visiting program providing non-medical support to those living with a life-limiting illness, or at the end-of-life, and to their families.
10 fully-furnished family suites
Today, Hospice provides a variety of programs in clients’ homes and at Campbell House, which has 10 fully-furnished family suites. Campbell House is located at 240 Erie Street in Collingwood. Hospice Georgian Triangle lends support to more than 500 local families each year. It still relies on hundreds of volunteers for raising funds and providing care.
Community support programs
In 2021, Hospice Georgian Triangle opened a downtown location at 186 Hurontario Street in Collingwood, allowing an expansion of community programming in a safe and secure environment.
At Campbell House, a professional staff of 45 provides excellent 24-hour seven-day-a-week hospice palliative care and palliative respite care. With its family-style kitchen, sitting rooms, and surrounding gardens, Campbell House is designed to feel like a home away from home for visiting families.
Funding and partnerships
Hospice Georgian Triangle is partially-government funded. Through the work of its sister organization, Hospice Georgian Triangle Foundation, it raises financial donations from the community.
We work closely in partnership with the Collingwood General and Marine Hospital, Ontario government home and community support services, and medical practitioners in the community. Hospice Georgian Triangle is a member of the South Georgian Bay Ontario Health Team recently approved by the Ontario Government to organize and deliver healthcare in our community.
Whether you have recently been diagnosed with a life-limiting illness, are supporting someone with a life-limiting illness, or have experienced the loss of a loved one, there are supports available to you at no cost. Hospice Georgian Triangle is accredited by the Hospice Palliative Care Association Ontario.
