North Hastings Palliative Support (original name) was started by two nurses in the basement of the old Bancroft Red Cross Outpost Hospital in 1996. Hospice North Hastings began with the Home Visiting Program and now offers a Medical Equipment Loan Cupboard, a Lending Library, a Residential Hospice, R & R Caregiver Day Program and Bereavement/Grief Support. Hospice North Hastings had an office above Pizza Delight in the old Canadian Tire store and from there to our wonderful Hospice House located at 27 Bridge St. East in Bancroft.
