"To say I am delighted to have joined Nanaimo Community
Hospice Society is an understatement. I have found my home
in Naniamo and am honored to be working with this dedicated Board, staff and the volunteers, who have, as a team,
created a remarkable organization. I look forward to meeting everyone in the near future."
At Hospice we believe that the dying should experience dignity and peace, their caregivers should get the help they need, and their friends and family should be supported in their grief. We have been serving the community for over 30 years and are Canada's first community based Hospice. We are a non-profit charitable organization.
Dying, caregiving and grieving are three of life’s greatest challenges that deserve compassionate and caring support. Hospice professional staff and trained volunteers provide a variety of free services.
