Thank you Rotary

Thank you Rotary for committing $1.0M to the project! We are thrilled to announce the building will now be known as the Stratford Perth Rotary Hospice.

Because We Care

Stratford Perth Hospice Foundation is a community based charitable organization committed to establishing a residential hospice in Perth County where palliative individuals, as well as their loved ones, are supported through their end-of-life journeys. Our community’s hospice home will provide a needed alternative to institutional care facilities and home care, an essential option that does not currently exist in Perth County.

 

Imagine a compassionate place where all who enter are warmly welcomed and cared forat no cost. A comfortable place where pain is kept at bay to make space and time for whatever brings you joy. Hospice palliative care is the better ending we all deserve.

 

Help us build it!

Full details available here, and we will continue to provide updates as revised timelines become clear.
