Counselling & Spiritual Health

Often the emotional pain and stresses associated with advancing illness or death can be as difficult to deal with as physical symptoms. Victoria Hospice offers a wide range of compassionate and professional counselling services for patients and families facing progressive illness, death and bereavement.

Registered patients and their families can receive support in their homes or on our palliative care unit to assist with emotional, psychological or spiritual issues, as well as practical matters such as financial, funeral and care planning.

For up to a year following a death, a range of bereavement support services are available in individual and group settings, either in person or by telephone. These services are available for all age groups, including specialized child and youth counselling.

Quality palliative and end-of-life care for all: Our mission is to enhance the quality of life for those facing life-limiting illness, death and bereavement through patient and family centred care, education, research and advocacy.
