PROGRAMS & SERVICES – Hospice Greater Moncton

Our services are free and confidential.

They are available to those living in Greater Moncton, the Tantramar region, and outlying rural areas. We thank our many private and corporate donors for helping us make a difference in the lives of those with a palliative diagnosis and their families.

Our programs are available to anyone facing end of life issues. This can be you, a family member, or a friend. You can be referred by a health professional, or self- refer for your own care or that of a loved one.

Hospice Moncton is proud to work in conjunction with the New Brunswick Hospice Palliative Care Association, the Extra-Mural program and family physicians.

To learn more, call 506-383-2404 or email info@hospicegm.ca.

Community Palliative Care

I feel honoured the client and family include me at their most vulnerable time.
– Mary, in-home palliative volunteer

Hospice palliative care focuses on the dignity and comfort of the dying person rather than on the aspect of incurable disease.

Volunteer visitors can significantly improve the quality of life for individuals. They pass screening and confidentiality requirements and receive detailed training to national standards of care. They are supportive, open and non-judgmental listeners.

Our coordinator will visit and match you with a volunteer with shared interests. The volunteer will visit in your home, and provide social, emotional and practical support, such as:

sunflower-icon provide companionship

sunflower-icon offer a compassionate listening ear

sunflower-icon share in meaningful activities

During weekly visits, this support may include drives to appointments or for an outing, reading, baking favorite foods, listening, talking, playing cards, music, and quiet support as death nears.

From the first meeting with HGM, the comfort was there. The people there are very kind and giving and they were my life line during Jerry’s illness. Our volunteer was incredible, the match could not have been better.
– Fiona, wife

Caregiver Care

The Hospice volunteer plays a vital role in providing care to patients in their own homes when their caregivers require time away from home to attend to personal matters.

The HGM volunteer helped make sure Dad was not left alone.
– Danielle, daughter

Bereavement Care

Our Coping with Grief groups provide a safe, supportive and healing environment for adults living with grief to explore their feelings of loss. Facilitated by a compassionate leader in a small group setting, you can speak or just listen.

This free program may help you make sense of the feelings and changes you are experiencing following the death of a loved one.

Discussion topics may include:

sunflower-icon Sharing of grief loss with pictures and stories.

sunflower-icon Discussion on Grief and the journey it takes us on.

sunflower-icon What are our loved ones thoughts and wishes for us?

sunflower-icon Grief and spirituality.

The grief group helps you through the heavy process of grieving with people who get it.
– Sarah, 38 yr old participant
