CAMBRIDGE – Hospice of Waterloo Region is pleased to announce the expanded availability of its programming and services at The Hub @ 1145 situated at Langs Drive in Cambridge.
“We are thrilled to be able to offer an increased presence in Cambridge through this collaboration with The Hub @ 1145. The bigger space means that we can offer all of our services for those in the community of Cambridge facing a life limiting illness” said Judy Nairn, Executive Director of Hospice of Waterloo Region.
“The Hub @ 1145 is reflecting the new strategy of Ontario Health Teams by forming partnerships with local agencies to benefit the local community.
“We’re looking forward to a long, mutually beneficial relationship with Hospice of Waterloo Region,” said Bill Davidson, Executive Director of Langs.
Making use of a larger, permanent space in Langs Community Hub, Hospice of Waterloo Region offers a weekly day program for those with serious illness, caregiver support groups for those who are caring for a loved one at home, bereavement support services for those experiencing loss, and family counseling by certified therapists and social workers on site.
The new space also allows for volunteer training and specialty health worker education sessions.
Hospice continues to provide regular services in Cambridge such as support in clients’ homes by a team of over 200 trained volunteers.
Services from Hospice can be obtained without a physician’s referral and are offered at no cost.
