Sanctum Care Group

Sanctum will provide a ten bed hospice for Saskatoon’s most vulnerable persons who are experiencing chronic illness as a result of their HIV positive status and who need specialized assistance in managing symptoms of their disease as well as other psycho-social and practical support.

A committed group of inter-agency professionals who already work directly with populations affected by HIV, addictions, mental health issues, homelessness, and poverty have formed an NGO, Sanctum, and will provide stable, supportive housing and healthcare support in one location through the proposed hospice.

The hospice will provide around-the-clock care for those HIV positive persons who have social and high risk behaviours and conditions, including homelessness, that prevent them from properly caring for themselves. Varying factors contribute to the continued and sustained failure of this population to access mainstream services.
