About Hospice of Waterloo Region:

Hospice of Waterloo Region (HWR) provides palliative care to people affected by life-threatening illnesses. HWR moved into its new facility in 2010. This building allows HWR to have its palliative care programs as well as other community programs (including physicians, CCAC nurses, care partners and a pain and symptom management team) together under one roof. This ‘one-stop-shop’ has enabled HWR to provide comprehensive services and has enhanced its brand in the community.

HWR's core program is its Volunteer Visiting program, in which trained volunteers provide emotional and practical support to palliative clients. HWR also provides professional therapy and support groups to youth who have lost a family member, through the Children's and Teen programs. Other programs include Day-Away, a program that allows palliative clients to participate in various therapeutic activities and provides caregivers with a break. HWR also provides professional counselling for patients and families at the Hospice Family Centre.

Financial Review:

Administrative costs are 5% of revenues and fundraising costs represent 8% of donations. HWR's funding reserves of $839k (including donor endowed funds of 342,799) almost cover annual program costs for 1 year.
