Hospice Northwest: A Leader in Providing Caring Companionship

About Hospice Northwest

At Hospice Northwest, we strive to help our clients make every moment matter by offering comfort, support and a sense of connection to families and clients who are dealing with a life limiting illness or struggling with grief.

Hospice Northwest is an accredited community hospice organization through Hospice Palliative Care Ontario. We are a non-profit organization that began in 1986 as the Thunder Bay Community Palliative Care Volunteers, and we are honoured to serve approximately 350 end-of-life clients and their families each year.

Hospice Northwest is a hospice without walls. We define hospice as a philosophy of care, rather than a place. Our specially trained palliative care volunteers provide emotional and spiritual support for clients and their families in their homes, hospitals or long-term-care facilities.

Hospice Northwest is a not-for-profit charity, managed by Executive Director, Communications Coordinator and Manager of Client and Volunteer Services and governed by a dedicated volunteer board of directors.

We comply with all current principles of palliative care service, and collaborate with other palliative care providers in Thunder Bay and District to ensure an effective, holistic approach to client care. 

Hospice Northwest serves the City and District of Thunder Bay with satellite offices in the communities of Geraldton/Longlac, Terrace Bay/Schreiber, Marathon, Manitouwadge and Nipigon.

Hospice Northwest is also a member of Hospice Palliative Care Ontario and the Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association.

At Hospice Northwest, we help you make every moment matter.
