Proudly raising funds for the Vancouver Hospice Society
Vancouver Hospice Society provides compassionate end‐of‐life care for those facing death and bereavement.
Much attention is currently being paid to the struggles our health care system is experiencing in meeting current demand. Cost effective alternatives to hospital care are needed. Hospice homes provide such an alternative. A bed in a hospice home costs approximately $500/day compared to a bed in a hospital which costs $1,200/day. This is due in a large part to the number of volunteers working in a hospice home.
Hospice care is a holistic approach that encompasses not only the physical needs of parents but also their emotional, social and spiritual needs.
Thank you in advance for your generosity!Buy Tickets
