Where Quality of Life Matters
Hospice House is a place where individuals can live, find comfort and connect. With all the comforts of home including private individual rooms, beautiful gardens, and gathering rooms, there are ample places to spend time enjoying the company of loved ones and friends.
Individuals are cared for by a team of dedicated professionals leaving loved ones the opportunity to spend time without worrying about care needs. Some people come to stay at Hospice House during the final stage of their illness; others come just for a short time, for example, to help manage their symptoms or offer a break for the caregiver.
Hospice House is a part of Interior Health’s Hospice Palliative Care Program.
