National Nursing Week: “To the Hands and Hearts that Care”

A famous expression says, “not all heroes wear capes.” This National Nursing Week, that statement is especially true. At Victoria Hospice, our heroes wear many things including a compassionate, caring smile.

  • “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.”
