"Victoria Hospice should be celebrating 40 years of providing end-of-life care for south Island residents. It can’t, which means another year of flying under the radar for the staff and volunteers who have made Victoria Hospice a North American leader in the area of palliative care since it started in 1980." - Travis Paterson, Oak Bay News
A life-limiting diagnosis can turn your world upside-down. Coming to terms with a loved one’s illness and end-of-life care can be world-shattering for families too. Our community counsellors provide registered Victoria Hospice patients and families with emotional support and strategies to help people live as well as they can throughout their end-of-life journey.
Congratulations to Victoria Hospice's Marney Thompson and Betty Anderson on the publication of seminal research they co-authored with Rosanne Beuthin (Island Health), Anne Bruce and Sarah Lundy (University of Victoria).
As the year 2020, and Victoria Hospice's 40th year, winds down, we take a look back on our 40 Years of Care. Plus, a special message from Victoria Hospice's staff and board of directors.
By June 2020, we recognized that the public health restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic meant we had to adjust the delivery of our Fall PCMI program to an online format. “It was such a short time frame in which to pivot. But we were eager to embrace the flexibility of an online format and, of course, ensure everyone’s safety. That was priority number one.”
