A Journey of Comfort and Celebration for
Lives Well Lived
Patients and Families
Through compassionate care and support, we help our patients experience the best quality of life possible. We support families through the caring of a loved one facing a life-limiting illness.
We offer grief and bereavement support by counsellors and trained volunteers for families and individuals, including children and teens.

Quality End-of-Life Care for All
Our mission is to enhance the quality of life for those facing life-limiting illness, death and bereavement through patient and family-centred care, education, research and advocacy.
Did you know health care decisions can be planned in advance? An advance care plan prepares you for unexpected events. Learn to write one in this workshop.
Victoria Hospice Bereavement Services is offering a one-time, online workshop, for those who are bereaved following the death of a loved one.

News and Updates
"Victoria Hospice should be celebrating 40 years of providing end-of-life care for south Island residents. It can’t, which means another year of flying under the radar for the staff and volunteers who have made Victoria Hospice a North American leader in the area of palliative care since it started in 1980." - Travis Paterson, Oak Bay News
A life-limiting diagnosis can turn your world upside-down. Coming to terms with a loved one’s illness and end-of-life care can be world-shattering for families too. Our community counsellors provide registered Victoria Hospice patients and families with emotional support and strategies to help people live as well as they can throughout their end-of-life journey.
Congratulations to Victoria Hospice's Marney Thompson and Betty Anderson on the publication of seminal research they co-authored with Rosanne Beuthin (Island Health), Anne Bruce and Sarah Lundy (University of Victoria).
“Victoria Hospice is a beacon of light for patients, families and the general public in what could otherwise be a dark and treacherous journey.”
“Our family cannot thank you enough for the care you gave to our father. His final days were spent pain-free. He was at peace. We also thank you for the counselling our family received and for all the volunteers who so kindly devoted their time and assistance to Dad and our family. Bless you all.”
“Although the time my mother spent under your care was brief, the difference you made is tremendous. Thank you for the care you provided her, and for the honest guidance you provided my family.”
