For more than 30 years, the Comox Valley Hospice Society has been caring for the dying and supporting those who love them. Every year Comox Valley Hospice supports over 1,000 people with a very small staff and over 100 dedicated and well-trained volunteers who are truly the heart of hospice.
Care, comfort and compassion is offered through programs including:
• Counselling for patients, families and caregivers
• Grief and bereavement support groups and spiritual care
• Caregiver respite and support including Reiki and Healing Touch
• Delivery of hospital beds to patient homes
• Advance Care Planning education and support
In conjunction with our care partners, the Comox Valley Hospice Society will be able to offer even more care, comfort and compassion to people who are dying and their loved ones in a new residential hospice located at The Views at St. Joseph’s General Hospital, opening in spring, 2015.

“Thanks for your generous support,” a spokesperson said.
“Without your support, hospice programs would be drastically reduced. More than two-thirds of the costs of providing this care comes from people like you.
“You make it possible for hospice to be here today . . . and, for hospice to be here tomorrow!”
