About Squamish Hospice

The Squamish Hospice Society has been in operation since 1986. We are a non-profit community service designed to support end of life care for patients and their families. Care for those in need is provided on a voluntary basis at absolutely no cost to individuals or their families.

Our Mission

The Squamish Hospice Society actively promotes compassionate care and support to improve the quality of life for people with life limiting illness, their loved ones and the bereaved. 

Our Statement of Values

We believe that: 

  1. Each person’s experience is unique, and they will be valued, affirmed and treated with dignity, respect and understanding.
  2. Life is a precious journey of growth and development and that dying and grieving are a natural part of this journey that can be met with serenity and hope.
  3. Individual choices will be respected to allow life to be lived to its fullest; while enabling each person’s physical, emotional and spiritual needs to be met on their own terms.
  4. Strength comes from our partnership with community, and we strive to promote and encourage an interdisciplinary, community- wide program of palliative care.

Our Goal

To ensure that those who face end of life and the bereaved in the Sea to Sky Corridor know that they can be supported by Hospice volunteers and programs.

Our dream

To provide a dedicated space in an appropriate environment for those unable to be cared for elsewhere.

 

"You matter because you are; you matter to the last moment of your life; and we will do everything we can, not only to help you die peacefully, but to help you to LIVE until you die."

Dame Cicely Saunders
