Do patients come to Victoria Hospice only to die?

No. Many of our patients are admitted to our In-Patient Unit for a short period of time so that symptoms may be managed, or a one-week respite can be provided for caregivers at home. These short stays often mean that patients are able to return home with follow-up support from Home & Community Care Nurses, Home Support services and family physicians.

Quality palliative and 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.
