About Hospice Northwest Services

A Leader in Providing Compassionate Companionship

At Hospice Northwest Services, 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 Services is a non-profit community hospice organization that began in 1986 as the Thunder Bay Community Palliative Care Volunteers.  We are honoured to serve approximately 450 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 Services is a not-for-profit charity, managed by staff and governed by a Board of Directors.

We are an accredited program through HPCO and 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 support in the communities of Geraldton/Longlac, Terrace Bay/Schreiber, Marathon, Manitouwadge and Nipigon. View our full regional coverage map for more details.

Hospice Northwest Services is an accredited member of Hospice Palliative Care Ontario (HPCO) and the Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association.

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