Welcome

Salt Spring Hospice 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.

Our services are provided in home, hospital or long term care facility settings by trained volunteers. Salt Spring Hospice, a registered non-profit charitable society, has been operating on the island since 1984.

Salt Spring Hospice is a member of the palliative care team.  We work in cooperation with other health care providers on Salt Spring. Our services are free to all patients and their caregivers.

We are thankful for the support we receive from Island Health,  those foundations, businesses and people in the community who provide grants and donations to help us meet our costs.

Many Saltspring residents have moved here from other parts of the world. Saltspring Hospice can be a valuable resource for those families needing to support their dying family member from a distance.
