Mission, Vision, Values
Our Vision: Every life lived to the fullest.
Our Mission: We help people live in their homes and communities by delivering the caring support that they and their families need.
Our vision and mission reflect our commitment to providing care that helps make every day as full of meaning and hope as possible. As a registered charity and not-for-profit corporation, our business is all about the difference we make in people’s lives. This commitment sets us apart: everything we do is focused on helping people to live their best lives possible. Every day.
We believe that everyone has the right to care regardless of their circumstances. That’s why VON works hard to raise donations that are used to bring valued care to our clients and their families.
Our values help guide how we work as a team and with our clients and families:
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.
VON Durham Hospice Services serves all of the residents of Durham Region with respect and dignity. We respectfully acknowledge that the land on which we serve and operate on is the traditional territory of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation, which is home to many First Nation, Inuit, and Métis People. We are a team that is committed to learning, understanding, and acknowledging the colonialist history faced by Indigenous peoples and the impact this history has today. We aim to provide culturally safe and anti-bias approaches to hospice palliative care across our team’s disciplines.
