Set in the hilly escarpment north of Milton, The Darling Home for Kids provides paediatric hospice care and respite services to families within communities in Ontario who have children with life-limiting or life-threatening illnesses requiring complex care and/or technology-dependent care.

In a home-like environment and with a highly qualified nursing and support staff, we are able to meet the needs of medically complex children and provide enriching experiences that help children transform and meet their full potential.

We invite you to explore our many programs, and hope that you will join us as we fulfill our vision to be an oasis of comfort and joy for the children and families we serve.
