Ways To Give
Adding life to days.
In 1988 at the Church of Holy Trinity in Toronto, a small and passionate group of people came together to care for Margaret Fraser, a friend and member of their community, by supporting her wish to die at home.
These exemplary efforts were documented by June Callwood in her book Twelve Weeks in Spring. Margaret's story is both the inspiration and seed of Hospice Toronto, as members of this initial Care Team went on to form Trinity Home Hospice: Toronto's first not for profit, community and volunteer-based, in-home hospice palliative care program.
Since 1988, Hospice Toronto's Care Team volunteers and professional staff have provided continuity of compassionate care and support to 4,697 individuals at no charge, directly impacting the lives of over 23,485 family members and friends.
Last year alone, volunteers and staff provided with over 20,400 hours of care and support so that 497 clients could spend their last days at home and die in dignity, comforted by the people and things they love. Also, 50 new home hospice palliative care volunteers received over 35 hours of training in general end-of-life and chronic care, and Care Team support. In addition, 15 new specially trained volunteers received an extra 21 hours of training to work with young people facing grief and loss or living with a life-threatening illness in our children's support programs.
