Hope and Healing Through Connection

DHH is a dynamic non-profit organization dedicated to enhancing quality of life through the provision of non-medical support for those affected by or caring for an individual with a life-threatening illness, as well as bereavement support.


Welcome to Doane House Hospice

                     a division of Better Living Health and Community Services

Serving the communities of north Aurora, Bradford, East Gwillimbury and Newmarket.


DOANE HOUSE HOSPICE HOURS OF OPERATION.

Monday - Friday 8:30am - 4:30pm

CLOSED:  Saturday, Sunday


Doane House Hospice promotes living every moment, and offers individuals diagnosed with a life threatening illness, compassion, support and hope.

Our programs and services are designed to support the individual by meeting their emotional, spiritual and physical needs. This gives the individual the ability to make the right decisions for their care, through being able to navigate the system, access the right care at the right time, and help support their family and friends through caregiver relief and bereavement.

Doane House Hospice is a volunteer based organisation and part of an interdisciplinary team that works towards helping our clients live life to the fullest with dignity, hope and comfort.  Please click here for a short video on Doane House Hospice.



Update about Coronavirus (COVID-19) for Hospice Programs

Better Living, Margaret Bahen Hospice and Doane House Hospice have established an emergency management committee and is closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation.  We are following the advice of  health authorities in order to ensure the safety of our clients, staff, volunteers and visitors.

As a result, effective immediately, we have decided to temporarily suspend all of our community/visiting hospice services.

All Doane House Hospice Community Programs are on hold until further notice (i.e. bereavement visits, groups, home visiting volunteers etc.) While these programs are temporarily on hold, we are still providing wellness checks to all our Clients in the community to ensure appropriate supports are in place. Please contact your our office if you have any questions or require any additional supports.


For more information, we have developed a COVID-19 Resource Page to keep you up to date. If you have health concerns or questions please call Telehealth at 1-866-797-0000.

Too Often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
