VON Durham Site, Home and Community Services - “Your Pathway To Hospice Services”

Virtual Walk, Run, or Roll for Hospice

Join us as we come together while being apart to walk, run, and roll in support of VON Durham’s Hospice Services. This year we need your support more than ever as we continue to provide compassionate and high quality hospice palliative care to those living with a life threatening illness throughout Durham Region.

What is Hospice?

Hospice is not a place; it is a concept of care. Hospice is about caring when cure is not possible. Hospice is about maximizing the quality of life during the last stages and is provided as a complement to professional medical care.

Our Vision

Every life lived to the fullest.

Our Values:

Respect – we support others honestly, openly and fairly.

Compassion – we listen and serve with sensitivity, empathy and concern.

Excellence – we commit to everyday improvement in all that we do.

Our Mission

We help people live in their homes and communities by delivering the caring support that they and their families need.
