WE PROVIDE SPECIALIST CARE FOR PEOPLE IN OUR COMMUNITY
We believe everyone should have access to the right palliative and bereavement care for them, when and where they need it.
We couldn't provide the care we do for clients and their families without the overwhelming support we receive from our community. Your donation makes a huge difference.
More than 90% of our funding comes from our hugely generous local community.
Matthews House Hospice is a registered charity offering caring, compassionate support to individuals, care-givers, and loved ones facing a life-limiting illness or grieving a loss.
Our Staff and Volunteers can help by providing Visiting and Residential Hospice, Group and One-on-One Counselling, Wellness Programs, Education and Outreach.
Our Volunteers are essential members of our community interdisciplinary health care team. Consider your availability and together we will develop a way for you to share your skills and interests.
