It is the Mission of the 100 Mile District Hospice Palliative Care Society to provide a volunteer service dedicated to the compassionate care of persons in the community, with life threatening or terminal illness and to their families.

This support is based on the philosophy, norms and standards of the BC Palliative Care Association and embraces the concept of compassionate, physical, emotional, spiritual and social care for the whole person.


The purposes of the Society (as per the Constitution) shall be to:

Hospice focuses on quality of living when cure is no longer an option

When physical and emotional needs are sensitively met, the journey toward death – though always difficult, can be a rich experience that gives meaning and completeness to life.

We are 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”.


The Board of Directors is responsible for the Governance of the Society. Elections for board members are held once a year at the Annual General Meeting in June. The Board meets on a regular basis and more meetings are scheduled when the need arises.
