Description

Services offered include:

  • Vigil service
    • Vigil can be provided for those at their dying time wherever the client is. Four hour shifts 10:00pm – 2:00am and 2:00am – 6:00am.
  • Sundowners program
    • Trained volunteers are available Monday through Friday from 6:00pm – 8:00pm at the East Kootenay Regional Hospital. These volunteers can stay with a client while their family goes for dinner or has a break. They are available to answer questions, offer Hospice information, advocate for the client and companion the family.
  • Client and family companion visits
    • Trained volunteers spend time with clients wherever the client is – at home, in hospital, in extended care or in residential care. A dedicated team of volunteers have committed to four hours of service each week. They are available to their clients for regular visits. They are not rushed and have time just to be with them or their families to support and listen to their concerns with a non-judgmental attitude. A Hospice volunteer will companion you and your family during the dying time of your life journey. Available to you from the time of diagnosis until the end. They can help you navigate the system and share resource information that is available to you. Their compassionate listening skills are a calming gift for you and your family during what is often a very stressful and confusing time.

Their office is staffed from Tuesday-Friday, noon until 4:00pm.
