The Pines of Peace in Ontario has been closed for 15 months and is finally ready to reopen.
The home works to have people with terminal illnesses in the last three months of their life be in a place of comfort.
The business, operating since 1998, decided to close after taking many factors into consideration including staff, patients, families and volunteers.
The Board of Directors have worked hard to reopen with creating safety protocols, hiring new staff and recruiting volunteers.
Costs have increased with the expense of overnight care, and traditional fundraising is happening again. They recently held a successful garage sale, their Annual Golf Tournament coming up on August 1st at Sodus Bay Heights Golf Club is coming up and a Garden Tour co-hosted by the Town of Ontario Garden Club is happening on September 9.
