Join our Team

Thank you for considering joining our Chatham-Kent Hospice team.

Everyone Welcome

Chatham-Kent Hospice welcomes all members of the community, regardless of race, national origin, colour, political affiliation, religion, age, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, family status, marital status (including single status), economic circumstance or disability. This is to be reflected in the individuals we care for as well as in our recruitment strategies for both staff and volunteers to ensure that we reflect the diversity of the Chatham-Kent Community.


Palliative care has always been my passion. I love helping our residents with their journey home while also supporting their loved ones with all the emotions during a difficult time. Hospice is the most beautiful place for families to be families; leaving the caregiving to us.

-Lola Pamer, Hospice PSW


With over five years of experience in social work, I have had the privilege of working with children, adults, and families in both community and clinical settings. My previous roles include positions at the Canadian Mental Health Association, the Avon Maitland District School Board, and the Happy Valley Family Health Team.

As a new resident of Chatham-Kent, I am greatly looking forward to engaging with community partners and making meaningful contributions to this vibrant and exceptional community.

Thank you for the warm welcome!

-Alex McAlpine, Hospice Social Worker


Before I became a nurse, I used to fear death. Once I started as a nursing student, the dignity and compassion I observed my Clinical Instructor provide to a patient made me certain palliative care is where I wanted to be. I love being the kind of nurse families at Hospice can have confidence and trust in, guiding them through their loved ones final moments. I choose to work at Chatham-Kent Hospice because I want to make a lasting impact on my community. Working at Hospice isn’t a job - it is truly an honour.

-Olivia Kwon, Hospice RPN


After losing my Mom 16 years ago, I switched my focus of practice to palliative. I wanted to make a difference for families to have an easy transition at end of life. Having been a nurse in the community for 30+ years, this is the the end of my career. I choose to work at Hospice because of it’s calling to serve our community. It is an honour and privilege to do this job.
