Reaching Families in Tender Times
Comox Valley Hospice Society delivers palliative direct care volunteer visiting programs at Comox Valley Hospital, Hospice at the Views, in care facilities, and in private homes. This support is offered in person (as COVID protocols allow), over the telephone, or online. We also provide one-on-one advance care planning with palliative clients upon request, and offer counselling, volunteer companionship, self-care programs and vigil support. Family caregivers are also able to access counselling, support groups, volunteer companionship and respite as well as self care programs. Those who have recently lost a loved one can access grief counselling, volunteer companionship through telephone, in person, or online connection, as well as support groups, walking groups, and yoga.

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.
