Hospice Georgian Triangle (HGT) is a registered charity that provides trained volunteer and professional care and support to individuals living with life-threatening illness or in their last stages of living, to their families and to the bereaved within the Georgian Triangle (The Blue Mountains, Collingwood, Wasaga Beach and Clearview Township).
HGT began in 1987 as an all-volunteer, community-based visiting program providing non-medical support to those living with a life-threatening illness, or at the end-of-life, and to their families.
In 2000, two respite suites were established in the Collingwood General and Marine Hospital to address the need to provide increased respite for the caregiver. Subsequently, the respite suites were moved to Sunset Manor.
Campbell House, our stand-alone facility with six residential suites, opened in August 2014. Our expanded premises, with an additional four residential suites, day program rooms and family kitchen opened in April 2017.
The North Simcoe Muskoka Local Health Integration Network (NSM LHIN) funds approximately 50% of our costs, and while Hospice Georgian Triangle does not charge a fee for services, our programs are made possible only through the generous donations of individuals and businesses in our community.
