Kingston’s first hospice residence is another great example of a Health Home being developed. Centrally located in Providence Village at 1200 Princess Street, construction is set to begin on a ten-suite residence that will provide 24-hour care and support services in a comfortable, home-like setting to residents, their families and loved ones.

“This is a significant milestone in our journey – after more than a decade of planning that started with Hospice Kingston and recently transitioned to the redevelopment team at Providence Care – we are ready to begin building Kingston’s first hospice residence,” says Krista Wells Pearce, Vice-President, Corporate Services & Executive Director, Hospice Kingston. 

This new care setting will complement the continuum of high quality, compassionate palliative care provided at Providence Care - community hospice visiting and support programs, subacute palliative care at Providence Care Hospital, specialist palliative care consultation throughout the organization, and now a hospice residence to provide end-of-life care. Offering these specialized services allows people to receive the high-quality palliative care that best meets their needs at different stages in their journey whether in their home, the hospital or the residence. The residence is scheduled to open mid-2024.
