Connecting with Our Community
Whether you are facing a life-limiting illness, a caregiver for someone who is, or planning for the future, Victoria Hospice is here to support you and equip you with the knowledge you need.
On this page, you will find upcoming events and workshops on death and dying, end-of-life care and planning, along with helpful resources to use at your leisure.
Introduction to Advance Care Planning
Oct. 5 & 12
We plan for birthdays, weddings, and even dinner – so why don’t we plan our health care?
What health care decisions are made when you are no longer capable of making them yourself? Who acts as your Representative or Substitute Decision Maker? What are your values, wishes and beliefs?
Learn about these terms, what they mean, and how to answer them in the workshop.
Upcoming workshops: Oct. 5 & 12
Here Today, Gone Tomorrow
Victoria Hospice Society would like to welcome community members to “Here Today, Gone Tomorrow”, a conversation game around living, dying, and what matters most.
This card deck is an easy, safe and sensitive way to reflect on what matters most in your life. We welcome you to join Victoria Hospice Education and Research Facilitators to engage in important discussions in a supportive environment.
Death Over Dinner
We are excited to invite you to join us for dinner and conversations on death and dying. Our event is open to eight community members to engage in thoughtful conversation while sharing the same meal.
Host your own workshop: Victoria Hospice offers public workshops and events that can be tailored to you and your organization. For more information, email Annie Do, Communication and Engagement Facilitator at Victoria Hospice.
