Hospice palliative care provides physical, emotional, psychological, spiritual and practical support, bringing together family members, friends, volunteers, physicians, nurses and other healthcare professionals, to maintain dignity in death and support for individuals and families:

- Address physical, psychological, social, spiritual and practical issues and associated expectations, needs, hopes and fears. 

-Prepare for and manage self-determined life closure and the dying process. 

-Cope with loss and grief during the illness and bereavement.

To enable those objectives, a place of comfort and warmth needs to be provided. Palliative Services has acquired a large parcel of land in a naturally wooded area, situated on the shore of the Lake, within easy reach of Elliot Lake, to establish such a facility. The building will be born of the same objectives as the desire to assist. They should reflect those values of comfort, support, the inclusion of family and friends, respect for privacy, yet with the ability to provide trained staff and resources as necessary.
