I am a caregiver

Caring for a loved one living with a life-limiting illness makes demands well beyond assisting the patient throughout their end-of-life experience. Victoria Hospice anticipates these needs by offering a variety of informational sources for caregivers.

In partnership with Island Health's Home and Community Care, our Palliative Response Team provides a unique 24-hour, on-call service offering short-term crisis consulation and treatment, plus helping support death at home.

Victoria Hospice patients and family members may also be eligible for home visits from physiotherapists, registered dietitians, social workers and other health care providers through Island Health.

More information on these services is available through Island Health's website.

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.
