Nurse Next Door and Strategic Property Solutions team up to provide medical equipment to those in need:

Strategic Property Solutions is proud to work with our local Nurse Next Door coordinator, Dwayne Stamplecoskie, to find homes for gently used medical equipment for those who need it the most in our community. We often come across such equipment in our work with Senior Downsizing and Estate Liquidations, and do our best to find people who can use the extra support and avoid the high cost of purchasing these vital items if possible.

Community Projects
Durham Region Hospice Project

Comfort, Care, Compassion

To better serve individuals in our community who are facing a palliative diagnosis, in February 2018, Durham Region Hospice, a partnership between Durham Hospice and VON Durham Community Corporation, launched Comfort, Care, Compassion, a $15-million capital campaign to support the construction of two new residential hospices in Durham Region and bring this much needed resource to our community.

Hospice care focuses on living – not dying. Individuals are empowered to choose how they navigate their final journeys, and their families receive support in preparing for their loved one’s last stages of life. A five-bed site in Clarington and 10-bed site in Whitby will provide free and meaningful care in a supportive, flexible and home-like environment. Residents will be cared for by an interdisciplinary team of health-care professionals and volunteers who will assist the medical team with comfort measures and pain and symptom management.

Once constructed, these new state-of-the-art facilities will offer private rooms, free parking, unrestricted visiting hours and the ability to live freely, including flexible meals based on each resident’s choice, continuing to live with pets, bathing/showering at leisure, going outside when desired and access to a wide range of non-medical service and program options including spiritual and emotional supports, arts and music and holistic healing practices.

Hospice is about caring, not curing, and the time to care is now. Donate today.

The Comfort, Care, Compassion campaign is running in tandem with the Building for Compassionate Care campaign that launched in October 2017 in support of the planned Oak Ridges Hospice in Port Perry.
