While the Shuswap region does not have a Hospice House, our trained volunteers provide social, emotional, spiritual and respite support where needed in the community. Hospice is patient centered care where individuality, dignity and quality of life is honoured. These services are provided in the home, in hospital, in care facilities and at our Resource Centre. Hospice is not medical care, it is emotional care.
Hospice provides thoughtful care to the terminally ill as well as those living with life-limiting illness. Hospice offers compassion and understanding to the many families affected, along with help with bereavement following the death of a loved one.
Shuswap Hospice Society works in partnership with many of the Health Care providers in our community. As a community support team our goal is to ensure quality care, living life well and family wellness. Hospice is a safe place to express your fears and concerns and to be heard and validated. We are firmly committed to bringing kindness, empathy, respect and sincere concern to the people we help. We are passionate about our goal.
