Evergreen Hospice commits to being integral in providing access to supportive services and compassionate care to people impacted by life-threatening illnesses or grief across our diverse communities.

Evergreen is a non-profit, charitable organization which depends on donations and limited government funding in order to provide support at no charge to the client.

In April 2014, Evergreen Hospice of Markham Stouffville and Hospice Thornhill, organizations that have both served their communities for more than 25 years, joined to become one stronger agency serving all three communities: Markham, Stouffville and Thornhill. Operational integration was complete at the end of 2013 with the governance and legal changes approved as of March 31, 2014. The new organization is now called “Evergreen”.

What is a Community Hospice?

As a specialized form of healthcare, hospice  care aims to improve the quality of life for those living with a life limiting illness, as well as their families and caregivers, and those who are grieving.  Community Hospice care addresses the psychological, social, spiritual, and practical issues facing these clients, and their associated expectations, needs, hopes and fears on an individual basis, while respecting their culture, faith and language.
