• Get into the Swim of it

    since 1986, Victoria Hospice's Swimathon has raised over $2M for end-of-life care. This year, a self-directed Swimathon aligns with World Hospice and Palliative Care Day on October 11th, 2014. We can’t think of a better way to honour a Victoria Hospice tradition and celebrate World Hospice Day.

  • Caring Begins at Home.

    Familiar surroundings and the creature comforts of home can be so important when dealing with a life-limiting illness. Victoria Hospice provides the supports necessary to allow patients to stay at home as much as possible.

  • Advance Care Planning

    Advance care planning is about having conversations with your close family, friends and health care provider(s) so that they know the health care treatment you wish to have, or refuse, if you become incapable of expressing your own decisions.

  • Compassion at the Core.

    Victoria Hospice is here for you. Here to provide compassion, support and care at the end of life. Here for individuals across the community — for your families, your friends and for your spirits — to help everyone through a difficult transition.

  • Hospice Stories

    There are a lot of pieces that work together to create the Hospice story. We celebrate all of them and most of all, we celebrate the people we serve. Their stories keep us doing what we do. If you have a story to share, please pass it along so we can tell yours.

Gregory's Story

A husband in the Yukon Territory tells the story of how his wife, mother of three young children, was helped at end of life by the Hospice Yukon Society, and about the role Victoria Hospice played in shaping HYS and the hospice care delivered in their home by volunteer nurses.

Celebrating our nurses every week at Victoria Hospice

When I am in the community and people find out where I work, I always hear the same thing – praise and thanks for the quality of care we provide to patients and families when they need it the most. In this praise, there is one group that is always singled out – our nurses. I am intensely proud and humbled by the work done every day by such a dedicated and compassionate team of professionals.

Flowers for the soul

Volunteers play an essential role at Victoria Hospice - indeed, without them, we could not begin to deliver the services at all levels which our community has come to rely on.
