The truth is you don’t know what is going to happen tomorrow. Life is a crazy ride, and nothing is guaranteed.
Receiving news about a change in health can be frightening and raise many questions.
One’s ability to read and process information can be affected and our hospice team is here to lend help and guidance whatever your needs may be. We support people at home, in care facilities, in hospital and in our community hospice.
A plan can be developed to assist you now and in the future and will include hearing what matters most to you and how you wish to be supported. Your needs may change over time and our team is here to be responsive to your wishes. It is our commitment to help make every moment matter for you and your loved ones as health care needs change.
To request further information or to arrange an appointment as soon as possible contact our office at 250-339-5533 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
When care needs change people can request an electric bed and therapeutic mattress to ensure greater comfort and ease for caregiving. To access this free in home service, talk with your Home and Community Care Nurse. Hospice Volunteers deliver and will set up the bed in your home.
Our community hospice offers personalized care in a home like setting for people whose care needs may no longer be met at home, or, for those preferring residential hospice care.
For more information about admission to our community hospice you may wish to talk with your or your loved one’s family physician, a Home and Community Care Nurse or call our office at: 250-339-5533.

Our counselling services are available for people of all ages who have been recently diagnosed with serious illnesses and their family, friends and caregivers. Counselling offers a confidential and supportive way to talk about feelings and what matters most to you.
Counselling is offered on a one-to-one basis and with families and small groups as appropriate. Usually counselling is provided in the Hospice offices. In addition, counselling may be provided in homes, care facilities, schools and at work sites. Services are provided free of charge but donations are always welcome.

“You have permission to rest.
You are not responsible for fixing everything that is broken.
You do not have to try to make everyone happy.
For now, take time for you. It’s time to replenish”
