About the Society
We are here to walk with you. Whether you are a client or a family member, we understand that from the time of a terminal illness diagnosis you are on a very personal journey.
Hospice is not just a place but also a concept. The focus is on caring, not curing; on life, not death. Quality of life, family wellness, community involvement and personal dignity are all part of the compassion and progressive vision of hospice care.
Revelstoke Hospice Society was incorporated in 1994 and is a registered non-profit with charitable status. Our work is community-based, and we collaborate with health care agencies, Queen Victoria Hospital, and other community resources.
