Dear Community Members,
During these unprecedented times, it is more important now then ever, for you to know that the programs and support provided by the North Simcoe Muskoka Hospice Palliative Care Network (NSMHPCN) and Hospice Orillia are still available.
The health and wellbeing of our clients, their loved ones, our volunteers and staff is our number one priority. We are closely monitoring the current COVID-19 pandemic, and while there have been many changes to our programs, we are continuously working on expanding and improving the support available utilizing various means to provide services virtually.
Our dedicated team of staff and volunteers have gone above and beyond to ensure that those in need continue to be able to receive support.
We are pleased to announce the launch of our bereavement support line. The support line will be available to the community starting the week of April 6th – 10th during the hours of 8:00am – 8:00pm, 7 days a week. For those in need of Hospice Orillia services, this support line will enable you to speak 1 on 1 with a member of our team. After-hours messages will be responded to within the next business day, in the order in which they were received.
If you would like to discuss how we could support you or your loved ones, please call our support line at (705) 325-7871 beginning the week of April 6th-10th.
The COVID-19 pandemic has created feelings of isolation, fear and grief to name a few; please know that you are not alone. By phone, email or video chat, we are here for you and together we will get through this.
For after-hours clinical requirements, you can call our 24/7 on-call Nursing support line. Stay tuned to our website for the toll-free number, which will be launched the week of April 13th.
Please stay safe and healthy!
Yours in health,
Director of Operations and Communications
North Simcoe Muskoka Hospice Palliative Care Network
