About Comox Valley Hospice Society
Comox Valley Hospice Society believes that everyone is entitled to compassionate person-centered care and support at the end of life. At the core of our programs is respect for our clients’ personal autonomy and choice, as well as cultural beliefs. With the support of a small but effective staff, our well trained and dedicated team of volunteers, and the generosity extended through private donors and grant programs, we are able to deliver a diverse range of support services, customized to each client’s individual circumstance and delivered in the setting most comfortable for them – at home, in hospital, a care facility or in hospice.
We believe that living with an illness, dying, caregiving and grieving are normal parts of life, and that living life to the fullest is important in every stage. Our hope is that when an illness occurs, it can be met with dignity and peace; that caregivers will receive the help they need; and that they, their families, and friends will be supported in their grief. Thank you for considering supporting your community and the Comox Valley Hospice Society in this way.
Comox Valley Hospice Society helps people young and old, from all walks of life to come to terms with death and dying. We support the dying as well as their caregivers and families as they navigate the challenges of illness and bereavement. We do this by providing compassionate emotional support through these tender times, offering companionship, support groups, visiting and self-care programs, as well as individual and family counselling. These services are offered at no charge, ensuring that all Comox Valley residents have access to these valuable resources. We also offer community education programs about advance care planning and volunteer opportunities.
How your gift will be used
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/communicable disease protocols allow), over the telephone, or online. We also provide one-to-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.
