Since 2008, McNally House Hospice is a residential setting that provides 24 hour specialized palliative care, free of charge, to people living with a terminal illness, as well as those in their life circle.
Serving the Niagara West communities of Grimsby, Lincoln and West Lincoln, McNally House has an approach to palliative care that reflects the hospice philosophy, through our comprehensive and compassionate programs for residents and their families. Such care seeks to maximize the individual’s quality of life; the emphasis is on living rather than dying.
We recognize that when cure is not possible, providing care and comfort is the priority. We realize the value of attending to the emotional, social and spiritual needs along with the physical health care requirements. We view each person as having unique hopes, fears, anger, expectations and desires. Our caregivers inter-professionally collaborate to provide compassionate supportive, palliative, end of life care, which is client-centered, holistic and culturally sensitive.
The residential care area has 6 beds, all in private rooms and has nursing and personal support staff available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
The focus is on the person and their family/loved ones and there are many areas available for them such as quiet rooms, outside space and family rooms.
