    “My last shift there I stood in each room and remembered the faces.  They’re in the walls.  They made their mark on the rooms.”

    The city forgets that “writers, professors, profound public figures and artists” all came to die at Perram House.  This eight-bed residential hospice in downtown Toronto was a place where people from all walks of life could die safely, comfortably and with dignity.  The hospice worked particularly hard to provide end-of-life care for Toronto’s homeless and marginalized residents. It closed its doors on April 10, 2013.  On October 5th 2013 the DEPARTMENT unveiled a commemorative sign to remember Perram House.

    This hospice had a rich history. Where will we go to die now?
