The COVID pandemic has shone a spotlight on the immense value of compassionate care at end of life. At The Bridge Hospice we continue to fulfil our mission and support our residents and families while implementing additional measures to safeguard everyone against COVID-19. Cancer and other life-limiting illnesses are not sitting out the pandemic and neither are we.

COVID-19 has dramatically impacted our annual fundraising events and community group donations which enable us to provide all care and services free of charge.  We need your support now.  A donation of any size will help and be spent with great care. If your personal circumstances permit you to give generously, now is the time. Thank you for your support – stay safe and take care!

The majority of our expenses – approximately 55% – are attributed to the direct healthcare needs of our residents as well as staffing of nurses and personal support workers. It is through funding from the Central East Local Health Integration Network (CELHIN) and a partnership with Saint Elizabeth that these costs are covered.

The remaining 45% of our expenses are not covered, including vital day-to-day operational costs like property management, heating, air conditioning, hydro, internet, administration, snowplowing, infection control, furniture, resident supplies, and so much more. These funds are raised through donations, grants, and special events.

Every Gift Counts!

Each donation is treated with great care and helps us to maintain our  warm, welcoming hospice home. For example, a gift of:

  • $10 will cover the purchase of a children’s toy/book or CD for our residents & families
  • $25 will cover one week of snacks & refreshments for residents & families
  • $50 will cover  one month of household cleaning supplies
  • $100 will cover one month of telephone or internet charges
  • $500 will cover one month of hydro charges
  • $1000 will support the replacement of furnishings in our hospice home
  • $1500 will cover annual equipment maintenance & repair costs
