Grace Hospital Not Dying


I was pleased to read that the Salvation Army has saved Toronto Grace hospital.  The charity has run the Toronto Grace since 1889.

I've had a soft spot in my heart for Toronto Grace since watching Allan King's excellent documentary "Dying at Grace".  It's about five patients dying in the Palliative Care Unit of the Salvation Army Toronto Grace Health Centre. We meet them, spend time with them and then we watch them die. It's terribly chilling, totally effective, and in many ways, absolutely reassuring.

If you ever get a chance to see Dying at Grace, I strongly urge you to do so.
