Welcome to St. Joseph's Hospice

Since 2005 St. Joseph's Hospice has been serving the community as a Resource Centre for terminally ill people as they face their illnesses and support programs for people who are caring for or grieving the loss of a loved one. In response to community need, we expanded our services to include the Residential Hospice at our new location on Christina Street North in late 2009 St. Joseph's Hospice opened its doors in December 2009. This ten suite home-like residence provides, free of charge, 24-hour specialized palliative care to people living with a terminal illness, as well as those in their life circle. The hospice is a non-profit organization serving Sarnia Lambton area. Along with the highly skilled professional staff, we have over 375 volunteers who give of their time and talents each week to help the residents and their families deal with life's greatest challenges.
