We acknowledge and thank our donors and champions for making Hospice of Elgin possible. Your support signals the importance you place on excellent local health care services, especially in caring for those as the journey towards life’s end.

“Currently, those who require Hospice care are having to be placed in sites outside our community or are having to be institutionalized to meet this level of care. Take a moment to imagine yourself lying at the end-of-life in a strange and unfamiliar place, vulnerable and alone, and away from home knowing that your family is unable to travel to be with you or can do so, but only under extreme burden. A Hospice within Elgin County would do much to improve the delivery of end-of-life care.”
Kathy Collier, Collier Homes
“This project does more than support families in need for end-of-life care. It builds our community. Hospice of Elgin supports development and retention of palliative care experts, physicians, nurses and PSWs, not to mention bringing over $10 million in economic benefits and the creation of many new jobs.”
