Residential Hospice Campaign
“The end of life deserves as much beauty, care and respect as the beginning.”
Yee Hong Centre has become known for providing exemplary, culturally-appropriate and compassionate care to seniors for over two decades. Today, in order to meet a growing need in the community, Yee Hong has added palliative care to its family of services.
Continuing the Culture of Caring.
Yee Hong’s staff and volunteers offer the same compassionate care to individuals who need palliative care and are living with the challenges of a life-limiting illness and less. Our goal is to help manage people’s pain so they can live life to the fullest with dignity, purpose and hope.
Yee Hong Hospice: A Home Away From Home.
In order to meet the increasing demand for these services in Scarborough and across the GTA, Yee Hong is embarking on a fundraising campaign to build a “Residential” Hospice at the Yee Hong Centre-Scarborough Finch – a home setting where families can spend meaningful time with their loved one while he or she is assisted by Yee Hong’s professional caregivers.
Hospice care is a type of care and philosophy of care that focuses on the palliation of a chronically ill or terminally ill patient’s pain and symptoms, while attending to their physical, emotional, practical and spiritual needs.
When all that is left is love.
When a loved one is diagnosed with a terminal disease, the impact is felt in all aspects of life and affects everyone connected. Seeking to live the remaining time in comfort, your loved one may wish to forego curative or life-prolonging treatment options and instead focus on living as pain-free as possible, pursuing time well-spent with family members – both young and old – while living the life they wish to lead prior to death.
Your contribution is essential.
We need your support to make Yee Hong’s Residential Hospice a reality. Our aim is to raise $6 million to develop and operate this facility. With your help Yee Hong can provide comfort and serenity for those who face the difficult challenges of a terminal illness. Thank you!
