Ontario Investing in Hospice Norwood

In Local

New funding from the Government of Ontario will make a big difference at Hospice Norwood. The funding, $60,000 in total, will be used to renovate an accessible bathroom, increase accessibility in the meeting space and hire a Rural Outreach Coordinator to oversee and coordinate community hospice programs.

“We’re working hard to expand health care services in rural communities like ours, and this investment will ensure that patients in Norwood receive high quality end-of-life care,” said MPP David Piccini.

“This additional funding and programming will better enable the hardworking staff and volunteers at Hospice Norwood to leverage Peterborough and deliver better care to our community.” Programming will be focused on people living with a palliative diagnosis, caregivers of people living with a palliative diagnosis and people experiencing grief due to the death
of a significant person in their life.

Carolyn Parkes, the new Rural Outreach Coordinator, will be an employee of Hospice Peterborough but will spend time at Stewart House in Norwood. Intake for programs will occur through Hospice Peterborough and people interested in programs can contact Intake Coordinators Amy and Lisa at 705-742-4042 x 251.

Hospice Norwood will be holding a public information meeting at the Norwood Legion on Tuesday, January 31 at 7:00pm, to update the community on progress Hospice Norwood has made in the past year and introduce the new Rural Outreach Coordinator.
