Legacy of care: compassionate care

The Sisters of St. Joseph of Hamilton instilled in our organization: that it is an honour to serve – and in particular to ensure that those most vulnerable and marginalized have access to compassionate, high-quality care.

Whether someone is navigating fear, anger, confusion, disillusionment, loneliness, or isolation, or savouring moments of joy, relief, renewal, or celebration, our Spiritual Care Team follows in the sisters' footsteps to offer support.
They welcome and honour a variety of beliefs and spiritual paths, recognizing that individuals may seek comfort in religious faith or follow different spiritual journeys.
