ABOUT US

Hospice is a community based non-profit Volunteer Society that provides trained volunteers to offer social, emotional and spiritual support to people living with or dying with an advanced illness and their family.

Services of support are also offered to family members through their grief. There is no cost for Hospice services.

Hospice volunteer services began in the fall of 1985.

Hospice services the 100 Mile District, including Lac La Hache, Bridge Lake and other districts.

We are a proud member of the Canadian and B.C. Hospice Palliative Care Associations. We adhere to the norms and standards of care of the national and provincial organizations.

In partnership with the 100 Mile House Palliative Care team, we are committed to “Helping people with a terminal illness live to the fullest until they die and to help their loved one to be supported in their grief”.
