Help us add touches of kindness, warmth and hospitality to the new Gies Family Centre Hospice Waterloo Region. 

Thank you for your interest in purchasing a virtual housewarming gift!

As we prepare to move into our new home, we want to make sure it is as comfortable as possible for those in need of hospice care in Waterloo Region.

So we are hosting a Virtual Housewarming Party, and we are inviting everyone in the community to get involved! Join us in Making Hospice a Home.

Virtual Housewarming Gift



Making Hospice a Home
Muffins in a pan

The heart of every home is the kitchen. The same can be said for hospices. Kitchen staff and volunteers will be committed to providing comfort meals to residents that are both nourishing and delicious. The residence’s main kitchen will not only provide daily meals for residents, but also lunches and snacks for our Day Program clients and refreshments/meals for those who are attending training/meetings in the administrative section of our facility. 

Our busy kitchen will need to be fully equipped to meet the dietary (and craving) needs of each resident, client and guest!

Your donation will be used to purchase:

  • Tea Towels and Dishcloths
  • Aprons and Oven Mitts
  • Pots and Pans
  • Cooking Utensils, Cutting Knives and Boards
  • Food Storage Bins and Containers
  • Drying Racks, Drying Mats
  • Garbage Cans, Recyling Bins
  • Pantry Shelves

*Note: As the items need to be new and of a commercial-grade and due to COVID-19 concerns, we are unable to accept direct donations of these items. Please consider sponsoring a new item in this category.

There are a total of nine different types of housewarming gifts. Learn about the other categories.

The Experience of Being at Home at Hospice

For many who come to a hospice residence, it is a highly emotional time. When a family and their loved one arrives, the staff and volunteers provide immediate care and support. By creating a welcoming and comfortable setting, we give families a place to feel safe and, most importantly, to feel at home. Hear about Merv and Sandi’s experience with hospice.
