• 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.

  • GET TO KNOW…

    The many ways your valued support helps Victoria Hospice. Communities are built through connections to one another. Connect with us, and help make our Hospice community stronger.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • History of Victoria Hospice

    Highlights from our over 30 year history.

Paul Bishop

To all the wonderful, caring, kind, loving folks of Hospice - your skilled intuitive grace created an atmosphere filled with calm and respect. This beautiful space allowed all of us to feel free to come and go, connecting in whatever way we desired. My heartfelt gratitude to all of your cherished souls.

The Gibson Family

The work you do here touches so many lives by providing a positive impact in otherwise negative situations. The level of care and overall affection I felt from the doctors, nurses, volunteers and even the greetings and smiles from the cleaning staff helped to lift my spirits each day I was there. I want to especially thank all those who say with my father and held his hand; all those who laughed at his jokes; all those that helped him out of bed; and all those that helped him when he could no longer help himself.

The Burgess Family

Thank you for the outstanding care you provided for Phyllis. You found solutions when she was in crisis, comfort when she was in pain, and friendship when she was lonely. We thank you not only for the extraordinary care you gave her but also for the time you took to help us understand the complexities. Mom spoke with gratitude of the friendships she built here. Bless you all for the peace you surrounded her with.

Evelyn Pendray

There are no words to express our gratitude to all the staff, volunteers, nurses and, especially, the doctors of the Hospice team. The care and thoughtfulness you all offer to your patients and their families is warm, genuine and never-ending. We humbly thank you for making Marjorie as comfortable as possible in your end of life care.

The Wong Family

On behalf of all the family members of the lately deceased Mr. Zung-Tung Wong, I would like to express our deepest appreciation of the care and compassion the staff and volunteers of Victoria Hospice had shown to our father during his stay with you. At our most sorrowful moment you have given all of us a new appreciated of human kindness and we cannot say thank you enough.

Tony Gvora

Words cannot express my gratitude for the loving care you gave, not only my wife Edith, but me as well. Growing up during the war in Slovakia, I had a mythological friend, Guardian Angel, who stood by my side to protect me during the bombings. Little did I know that many years later, there would be real Angels who would caress my wounded soul and show me the real meaning of life. Your love will be forever engraved in my spirit.
