About Hospice House…

Hospice House is a 10 bed residential hospice located in Fredericton which provides 24 hour care to palliative patients and their families. Care is offered by a specialized team of nurses, support staff and physicians in a home-like, caring environment. Through physician referral, admission to Hospice House is on a voluntary basis and patients can be admitted directly from home or transferred from hospital.

Hospice House Admission Criteria:

Patients must be registered in the palliative program to be eligible for inpatient care within Hospice House. It is the palliative physician that determines if a patient is eligible for admission. Following receipt of a referral, our admissions team will work closely with the patient, family and medical partners (such as Extra Mural) to ensure a smooth transition to the facility at the appropriate time.
