Community Program Overview

Many people believe that hospice care is only for individuals at the end of their life.  Although this is the case within our Bethell Hospice Residence, our Community Program, supports individuals throughout a life-limiting illness, right from the time of diagnosis.  Accessing supportive services can have many advantages.  In fact, numerous studies show that early connection with supportive services during a life-limiting illness can promote a higher quality of life.       

Bethell Hospice offers a variety of Community Programs and Services for the following:

  • Individuals living with a life-limiting illness
  • Individuals who are supporting a loved one who is living with a life-limiting illness
  • Individuals who have experienced the death of a loved one

Our professional team of Social Workers and Spiritual Care & Grief Counsellors are available to offer practical assistance and supportive care through all stages of life-limiting illness and bereavement.  Our person-centered approach to care fosters dignity, respect and comfort for our clients and their loved ones, and we are committed to privacy and confidentiality.  Services are provided via in-home visits, phone calls, and virtual video calls.  One to one and group programming is available.  Our diverse team of clinicians are also available to assist with community outreach and educational opportunities.

Trained Volunteers are also available to provide a variety of supports and services through our in-home visiting program. 

All programs and services are provided at no cost. There are no fees to participate in any of our community programs, and no one is ever denied care due to their financial situation.
