Good hospice palliative care is whole-person care.
Rather than cure, hospice palliative care focuses on taking care of physical symptoms, like pain and nausea, while considering a person’s social, emotional, and spiritual needs.
Hospice palliative care aims to support a person’s choices for the best possible quality of life. This includes support for family members.
Hospice staff and volunteers are part of the care-giving team (family, friends, and health care professionals) who provide emotional support and information, and help ensure the individual’s needs and choices are met with sensitivity. Our palliative care services include:
- One-to-one emotional support for palliative clients, their families, and friends
- A visiting team at Cowichan District Hospital
- Advance care planning
- Lending Library
- Home visits
- Wellness treatments for clients and their caregivers (e.g.: reiki and therapeutic touch)
Self Referrals Accepted & Services Are Free of Charge.

You matter. Your family matters.
The end of life is a precious time, and we all deserve quality care.
