Mission, Vision and Values

Our Mission, Vision, and Philosophy of Care

Our Mission

To provide compassionate, high-quality care for residents from the time of their diagnosis through their palliative and end of life journey.

Our Vision

To create a ‘home away from home’ for residents and their loved ones when care at end of life is needed.

Philosophy of Care

Jessica’s House will provide a holistic approach to care by encouraging families and residents to have autonomous, patient centered care. We follow the palliative approach to end-of-life care.

Jessica’s House Hospice Land Acknowledgement

We want to acknowledge that Jessica's House Hospice is situated on the traditional territories of the Anishinabewaki, Attiwonderonk (neutral) and Mississauga Nations.

We reflect on the injustices that these peoples have faced and vow to move forward by treating everyone equitably. We acknowledge the continued stewardship of the land and water by First Peoples and take responsibility as a public institution and treaty people to renew our relationships with First Nation, Métis, and Inuit people through reconciliation, community service, and respect. We understand that we have a lot to learn about Indigenous topics and will do our best to educate ourselves further.

Inclusivity Statement

Jessica's House Hospice is actively working to create a respectful, fair, and inclusive environment that mirrors and honors the diversity of the community we serve. We embrace and celebrate the diversity of individuals who enter our doors and engage with the services we offer. The strength of our community is enhanced by the variety of people within it, and we are dedicated to showcasing that everyone's dignity, beliefs, and identity are treated with respect.

JHH is committed to cultivating an environment and fostering a culture that welcomes all individuals, promoting diversity and inclusivity. We are devoted to understanding the unique cultural, spiritual, physical, and psychosocial needs of those under our care. Our commitment extends to addressing issues of racism and discrimination, actively working to reduce inequities. We highly value inclusion and acknowledge the importance of building a culture of equity to excel in providing end-of-life care.
