Victoria Hospice Welcomes New Board Members

At the heart of many organizations is a Board of Directors dedicated to furthering its cause. The Victoria Hospice Society is proud to welcome four new members to its Board of Directors, helping us fulfill our goal of quality palliative and end-of-life care for all.

  • “Victoria Hospice is a beacon of light for patients, families and the general public in what could otherwise be a dark and treacherous journey.”
    D. Hutchings, CNS, End of Life Care
  • “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.”
    The Bray Family
  • “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.”
