The public is invited to attend our AGM: Saturday, March 5th, 10 am, via Zoom

Hospice palliative care is dedicated to relief of suffering and improving the quality of life for people and their families who are living with or dying from advanced illness, and anyone experiencing grief and loss.

The hospice society also offers community education and information aimed at increasing knowledge, confidence and support for community members dealing with end of life or loss in the lives of themselves, family or friends. Upcoming educational sessions planned so far, this year will cover green burial, grief support, dying process and end of life decisions & planning featuring guest speakers such as Dr. Trevor Janz and Christa Ovenell (the Death’s Apprentice heard on CBC). Being informed and knowledgeable can help in maintaining dignity and control throughout all stages of life. 

The work of our hospice is to be in service to others and is largely done by highly trained and skilled volunteers, the hardworking board of directors, and our executive director. 

Please call us at 250-353-2299, email or visit the website for more information or to become a member or to register for the AGM (also see the classified ad in this copy of the Pennywise for AGM details). A current membership is required for voting at the AGM.
