Near North Palliative Care Network (Nipissing-Parry Sound) is our Community Hospice in North Bay since 1987.
We provide compassionate support for the terminally ill person and their families. Our volunteers play a special role in helping individuals and their families through the dying process. We provide information, companionship, deep listening, and healing in the face of a terminal illness.
We also provide grief and bereavement support. Trained volunteers are available on a 24-hour basis. We are a recognized charity and our service is provided at no cost to the client or family.
Fundraisers such as the Music Night and our annual Butterfly Release at the North Bay waterfront on July 15th, 2017, are critical to sustaining service provision. This is especially true in the coming years as there is more and more demand for our services.

“SENIORS HELPING SENIORS” NNPCN PROJECT TO BE LAUNCHED IN AUGUST!
EMPOWERING OUR COMMUNITY THROUGH EDUCATION AND TRAINING
Near North Palliative Care Network, YOUR LOCAL VISITING HOSPICE FOR THE LAST 28 YEARS, will be launching their new Public Services Project “SENIORS HELPING SENIORS” this August 2016.
A series of free monthly training sessions for Seniors and Caregivers will be happening at St. Joseph’s Motherhouse from September 2016 on. The idea behind the project “SENIORS HELPING SENIORS” is to empower the community with free education and training about End of Life.
68% of our Seniors choose to age and die at home. This means that we need a massive percentage of our population trained to give care to their loved ones at home while keeping a high quality of life as caregivers, and giving high-quality end-of-life to their loved ones.
All Seniors and Caregivers of our community are invited to participate and there is no charge. Dates and themes of the series to be announced soon! STAY TUNED!
NEAR NORTH PALLIATIVE CARE NETWORK: YOUR LOCAL VISITING HOSPICE FOR THE LAST 28 YEARS!
Please remember NNPCN between your Hydro and telephone bills, and SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL VISITING HOSPICE ALL YEAR THROUGH!
YOUR DONATION MAKES FREE PALLIATIVE CARE VISITING HOSPICE AND BEREAVEMENT SUPPORT SERVICES HAPPEN IN OUR COMMUNITY!
PERCEPTIONS ON COMMUNICATION, COMPASSION AND RESILIENCY
PRESENTER: Gen McRae
WHEN: Wednesday, May 3rd, 1-3 pm
WHERE: St. Josephs’s Motherhouse, 2025 Main St W, North Bay
Communication is a vital part of our everyday lives as we connect with one another. We convey messages and share our stories using words, body language, tone and emotion. Our challenge is to understand others and to be understood when we discuss everyday life situations or serious events. Have you ever felt ‘lost for words’, believed you said the wrong thing or feared your words were misunderstood? We will explore the connection between how we convey our intended message to how it is perceived by others. Applying compassionate communication skills assists us to embrace emotion, exercise sensitivity and listen effectively. Resilience teaches us to remain ourselves while assisting others.
Gen has worked in funeral services in Toronto and North Bay as a Funeral Director Assistant, a Bereavement Facilitator, and a Funeral Celebrant. She completed training as a Funeral Celebrant at King’s College in London. For the past 17 years, she has officiated personalized funeral services throughout the North Bay area. Gen is a Genesis Bereavement Facilitator. She has provided group and individual bereavement support at Hospice Richmond Hill, York Family Funeral Centre in Thornhill, Rosar Morrison Funeral Home in Toronto, and Near North Palliative Care. She served as the Regional Volunteer Representative for Bereavement Ontario Network and has volunteered 15 years at Near North Palliative Care.
This series is made possible with a New Horizons grant from the Government of Canada, a RTO-ERO District 43 grant, and brought to you by Near North Palliative Care Network, YOUR LOCAL VISITING HOSPICE.

JULY 4, 2016 OFFICIAL RELEASE
Feel free to share on, to raise awareness about Palliative Care Facts in our Community.
APRIL 16, 2016 ADVANCED CARE PLANNING DAY ACROSS CANADA
BE A CHAMPION FOR THE CAUSE!
Advance Care Planning is a process of reflection and communication. It is a time for you to reflect on your values and wishes, and to let people know what kind of health and personal care you would want in the future if you were unable to speak for yourself.
It means having discussions with family and friends, especially your Substitute Decision Maker – the person who will speak for you if you cannot speak for yourself. It may also include writing down your wishes, and talking with healthcare providers and financial or legal professionals (All credits to the Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association, – Speaking Up Campaign).
THIS IMPACTS EVERYONE!
The Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association has a five-year plan with a primary goal to raise the awareness of Canadians about the importance of advance care planning and to equip them with the tools they need to effectively engage in the process.
OUR CHALLENGE TO YOU!
Now here is where you and your families can become Champions for the Cause!
Click on the following link (Ontario Version): Advance Care Planning Quick Guide and Workbook
Speak Up! Start the conversation with your partner/spouse/parent or adult children about end-of-life care and Substitute Decision Making. Once the conversation happens, start on the workbook and make sure you put it in a safe place and your Substitute Decision Maker knows where to locate it. Know that there is a lot of additional information to assist you along the way.
Take a look at the following links:
Share this information with your friends, email contacts, friends and Facebook friends. Since you have completed your challenge, why not help others around you to “Start the Conversation”.
Write to us at [email protected] and tell us how you “Started the Conversation” and how it went by April 30, 2016. We want to share your stories on social media to show others how it can be done.
Go out there and Speak Up!
