Victoria Hospice Support & Funding
Victoria Hospice is a registered charity that has, since 1980, provided end-of-life care focused on palliative treatment. Nurses, counsellors, spiritual caregivers, physicians and trained volunteers provide comfort for the patient and support for the family, rather than a cure for progressive and life-limiting illness.
Roughly 50% of Victoria Hospice’s annual operating costs are not covered by our health care system, and the Victoria Commandery is a major contributor to the Victoria Hospice and Palliative Care Foundation. In addition, the Victoria Commandery funds the “Closer to the Community” counsellor program highlighted in the video below.
