Planning Ahead for Sustainable Programming
Planning for Future Needs
The Comox Valley Hospice Society is committed to delivering programs that meet the needs of Comox Valley families. Contributing to our annual fund allows us to budget and plan ahead to develop sustainable programs and resources. We want to ensure that those who are dying, their caregivers, and those who are grieving the loss of a loved one, have help when they need it. By giving to CVHS, you’re investing in the mental health of your community promoting wellness, quality of life, and resilience in difficult times.
Hospice is a Philosophy of Care
Comox Valley Hospice Society helps people young and old, from all walks of life to come to terms with death and dying. The diagnosis of a life-limiting illness or the loss of a loved one often comes unannounced, disrupting the usual routines of life and shifting priorities. Our counsellors and volunteers are trained to help the dying live life to the fullest during the final stage of life. Our goal is promote dignity for the dying, to ensure they are comfortable and able to participate fully in decisions that affect them whether that happens in a hospice, a hospital or care facility, or at home. Charitable donations fund 70% of our annual operating budget, allowing to us offer counselling, companionship, support groups and resources at no cost to individuals and families in the Comox Valley.
