New hospice to aid homeless on the journey home
The journey home can be hard, but it’s harder for the homeless.
That’s why the home-care specialists at St. Elizabeth Healthcare are teaming up with other organizations to launch a new hospice for Toronto’s homeless population.Named the Journey Home Hospice, the new four-bed facility is a joint initiative of St. Elizabeth Healthcare, the homeless health specialists at Inner City Health Associates of St. Michael’s Hospital and the volunteer specialists at Hospice Toronto. It will open in downtown Toronto in February backed by a $245,000 contribution from the provincial Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. The ministry will also kick in $105,000
