We’re Here to Guide You
At Victoria Hospice, we try to help you find a way through the overwhelming emotions and practical realities of coping with end-of-life illness. Here, you can find links to outside agencies for additional support, books, online tools and how-to guidance for practical concerns and planning. We’re here to help patients, families and caregivers navigate the journey with security and peace of mind.
