Providing compassionate and caring support to those facing end-of-life or grieving 
What is Hospice Care

Hospice is a special concept of care designed to provide psycho-social comfort and support to clients and their families who are grieving or experiencing end-of-life. Hospice care neither prolongs life nor hastens death.

 

The goal of hospice care is to improve the quality of life for the clients and their families. Inviting hospice to support you early in your journey will help ensure all services are in place allowing you to live a purposeful life, sharing joy and love with your family and loved ones. 

 

We provide hospice care at no cost in your home, hospital, long-term care or our Hospice Care Centre. 

 

Our hospice helps with the emotional, social and spiritual impact of the disease on the client and the client's family and friends. We offer a variety of bereavement and counselling services to families before and after a loved ones' death. 
 

Inviting hospice to support you early in your journey will help ensure all services are in place allowing you to live a purposeful life, sharing joy and love with your family and loved ones.

As a nurse, my greatest challenge was helping my patients understand that hospice and palliative care is provided to help you live your best end-of-life, in a compassionate caring environment where you can enjoy your loved ones without pain and suffering. This is why I spend my retirement dedicated to helping the Campbell River Hospice Society.
