~ CARE. COMPASSION. COMMUNITY. ~
Since 2005 St. Joseph’s Hospice has been serving the community of Sarnia Lambton as a Resource Centre for terminally ill people as they face their illnesses and through support programs for adults and children who are caring for or grieving the loss of a loved one. In response to community need, we expanded our services to include a 10 bed Residential Hospice in 2009. This ten suite home-like residence provides 24-hour specialized palliative care to people with a terminal illness as they approach their end of life.
