Roger Neilson Children’s Hospice is a home away from home for children with life-limiting illnesses and their families.

We enrich the quality of lives, no matter how short.

Roger Neilson Children’s Hospice is only one of a handful of pediatric hospice palliative care facilities across Canada. Our daily purpose, which gets us all up and going each day and every shift, is our commitment to enhancing the quality of young lives, easing a difficult journey, and creating enduring legacies.

Discover our home away from home, an uplifting place where kids can be kids, families feel supported, and memories are made.
