Journey Home Hospice, a new care facility for people who are homeless and facing the end of their life, first opened its doors in April 2018 with Phase 1 of their hospice. We’ve just completed Phase 2 of the hospice, which provides inclusive high-quality care to some of the city's most vulnerable people. Journey Home Hospice is a partnership involving three health organizations: Saint Elizabeth Foundation, Inner City Health Associates and Hospice Toronto.
On November 6th, TVO aired an episode of The Agenda with Steve Paikin, where The Agenda learned about Emily's House, a Toronto hospice for children and families facing life-threatening illnesses and named for a young patient with a rare and terminal neurodegenerative disease who recently passed away. At Emily's House, children get the care they need with all the comforts of home for themselves and their loved ones. An in-studio panel interview on Emily’s House and paediatric palliative care was featured, including Rauni Salminen, CEO/Founder of Emily’s House. Steve Paikin said that it was one of the most “meaningful” segments that they have broadcast. Click here
