Palliative and Hospice Care

Palliative care at Golden Dawn involves all departments and all staff members.   Care is aimed at relieving suffering and improving quality of life for those who are living with, or dying from, an illness.   As a team, we provide care that is compassionate, competent, ethical and addresses a residents' physical, psychological, social, spiritual and practical needs.  We encourage opportunities for meaningful and valuable experiences and personal and spiritual growth consistent with the guidelines from the Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association.

Care is most effective when delivered by a multi-disciplinary team of knowledgeable and skilled healthcare providers.   At Golden Dawn we have both a core and an extended resource team focused on supporting residents and their families.  

Upon request, Hospice support may be arranged through Bruce Peninsula Hospice.   Hospice volunteers provide non-medical services based on the individual needs and requests of the resident or resident’s family.   For more information visit

Medical Assistance in Dying

At Golden Dawn we provide compassionate end-of-life care that values each person as a unique individual with unique needs and expectations.  Our goal is to support the resident and their family, empowering them to make informed decisions about the care they would like to receive based on their priorities and values and supporting their choices.

Golden Dawn respects the residents request that we will provide medical assistance in dying and the resident will be referred to medical practitioners for consultation and assessment .  Should the resident meet the eligibility requirements for MAID the resident may have procedure carried out at Golden Dawn.
