Care is Our Core Work

We provide care to the community, at home, in-residential and in-hospital

Salt Spring Hospice Society is a volunteer organization dedicated to providing comfort, care and support to people affected by life threatening illness. We hope to add quality of life to the end-of-life journey. You are not alone.

Compassionate support for the dying and bereaved

We provide bereavement services following the death of a loved one. Nearly 60 trained, dedicated volunteers play essential roles.

There are no direct costs for our services. We rely on fundraising and donations for which we can provide a tax receipt.

The Journey

We understand the journey of a life-threatening diagnosis, of dying, of grieving. We recognize it can look different from each perspective of those involved and that each may need some help along the way. Hospice is part of the care team and can offer support, tools and resources to work together on providing the best quality of life during end-of-life care and beyond.
