Hospice Vaughan has adopted the compassionate communities theory of practice and model. At the core of this model lies a compassionate city. Our goal here is to open up a forum to the community and encourage people to advocate, provide assistance, and share valuable tips and information. Share, assist, encourage, support, and connect! Compassionate communities respond to local community needs, empower individuals, and provide important information and support. CLICK HERE TO JOIN THE GROUP
