• 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.

“You make it possible for hospice to be here today . . . and, for hospice to be here tomorrow!”
