The team at Mariposa House Hospice is committed to providing end-of-life care to manage symptoms and improve quality of life for patients and their families while continuing to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission.
COVID-19 is a serious health threat to individuals and our community. Our main objectives are to keep people safe and to continue offering this essential service to our community.
Taking into account a variety of factors, we have implemented key measures to protect our residents and visitors, our staff and volunteer team, our partner organizations, and our community as a whole.
Our policies and procedures align with the directives issued by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Public Health Ontario.
