About Us

Waterfront Walk Teams


Teams are an important part of our Waterfront Walk! They support in a tangible way the commitment to Mindfulness practices throughout Hospice and Palliative Care. Our staff provides the complementary therapies that add an extra dimension to nurture the mind, body and spirit to foster a sense of peace and well-being.
