CASEY HOUSE was Ontario’s first hospice, founded in 1988 with a huge boost from many volunteers and journalist JUNE CALLWOOD. It’s named after her son who died in a motorcycle accident.
The institution has outgrown its home on Isabella Street and will soon take possession of a brand new hospital, doubling its care capacity and with multiple services grouped under one roof.
According to Casey House more people in TORONTO are living with HIV than ever before. One in 120 adults in the city is now HIV-positive. HIV/AIDS can be very difficult and expensive to treat. The new CASEY HOUSE will remain Canada’s leading facility treating this chronic disease.
