Because You Cared

The Stratford Perth Hospice Foundation is a community based charitable organization committed to raising operational funding for the Rotary Hospice Stratford Perth where palliative individuals, as well as their loved ones, are supported through their end-of-life journeys.


The Rotary Hospice provides a peaceful, comfortable home with 24-hour specialized palliative care for those at end-of-life as well as support for those in their circle. It provides a needed alternative to institutional care facilities and home care - an essential option that did not previously exist in Huron Perth and Area until its official opening on June 22, 2019.

In partnership with other healthcare providers and professionals, we offer excellent palliative care to help ease emotional, physical, social, and spiritual suffering for those who are dying, their families and friends.

Land Acknowledgement

We wish to acknowledge this land and communities within which our Hospice operates. This area where we provide service is the traditional land of the Anishinaabe, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples who have cared for the land, sky, and waters for thousands of years. We also acknowledge that Stratford and Perth County are subject to the Huron Tract Treaty 29 and the Saugeen Treaty 451/2. Today these lands are still home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to live and work here. We acknowledge historic and ongoing injustices that Indigenous peoples endure in Canada, and we commit to sharing and learning from the wisdom of First Nations, Inuit, and Metis peoples as we provide comfort to all who gather and reside in our care.​
