Our Volunteers

Volunteers are the heart of Squamish Hospice Society; they give generously of their time and are dedicated to ensuring that anyone in our communty dealing with end of life care or bereavement is supported through their difficult time. 

Hospice is a philosphy of care that is understood by our community of volunteers and is given from the heart. Every volunteer has participated in a training program and are prepared to assist patients and their families. They understand the importance of privacy and are respectful of the personal choices.

Our Care Giving Team

Includes family physicians, home care and/or hospital nurses, palliative care coordinator, home support services, spiritual supports if requested, volunteers as needed and other community and health care resources as indicated by the patient's needs.

Hospice is non-denominational and recognizes all faiths.
