Palliative Care

Volunteer Visiting

At Hospice we believe that volunteer visitors can significantly improve the quality of life for individuals and their families as they face serious illness. Volunteers can visit individuals and families in the hospital or at home. Volunteer Visitors can:

  • Provide companionship.
  • Offer a compassionate listening ear.
  • Share in meaningful and comforting activities.
  • Provide respite for the family.

Volunteer visits in the hospital are made daily and home visits are scheduled at mutually agreeable times. The presence of volunteers can improve quality of life for those who are ill and their caregivers.

Practical Support

Often a family facing end of life can also be faced with financial and practical hardship. The Hospice Society is able to provide support quickly where it is needed. Your Palliative Care team can make a referral to the Hospice Society indicating the families’ needs and the Hospice will do everything possible to help. Some of our programs for practical support include:

Special Equipment/Supplies
Meets the need for specialized equipment, supplies and other requests when there are no other funding sources.

Other Supports

Advocacy & System Navigation
The Hospice is available to assist families in navigating an often confusing health care system and advocating for their needs and rights.

Art a la Carte
Provides a choice of artwork to palliative patients in the hospital to personalize their room. Artwork was generously donated by local artist Joy Laking.

– At Hospice, we aim to create opportunities for individuals and families to talk about end of life. We advise that everyone plan for end of life, consider their wishes, and pursue quality of life each and every day. It is our hope that when playing this lottery, people will consider these things and what they would check off their “bucket list” if they won. –
