Our Hospice Philosophy

As a specialized form of healthcare, hospice palliative care aims to relieve suffering and improve the quality of life for those living with a life limiting illness, as well as their families. Hospice palliative care addresses the specific physical, psychological, social, spiritual, and practical issues, and their associated expectations, needs, hopes and fears on an individual basis.

Here at Ed’s House Northumberland Hospice Care Centre, our pledge is to provide a centralized ‘hub’ of excellence for all resident and community hospice palliative care, education and support services from early client engagement to ongoing support, comfort and care to individuals and their loved ones.
