Vancouver Hospice provides a comfortable, home-like atmosphere for patients who require exceptional nursing, medical and emotional care at the end of life. We also offer respite care, as well as counselling and bereavement support for the entire family.
Our clinical team consists of nurses, care aides, physicians, counsellors and a clinical coordinator, with specialized training in palliative and end-of-life care. They bring a wealth of experience and expertise, with the goal of providing complex pain and symptom management, counselling support, and compassionate care to all of our patients and their families.
Vancouver Hospice nursing staff work 12-hour shifts beginning and ending at 07:00. Physicians visit patients throughout the week, and are available on-call 24 hours a day. Our team also meets weekly to review and evaluate patients, and to ensure the changing needs of patients and families are met.
Our incredible team of trained hospice volunteers are available to provide companionship and bereavement support to patients and families in the hospice, and in the community.
