COVID 19 Update
We hope this message to our clients and their families, our volunteers, and our colleagues, supporters, donors and sponsors finds you all secure in home and health. We are following Fraser Health guidelines for appropriate contact with vulnerable people but have been creative in finding ways to support our clients as we can. After working from home for a while, our staff is back in the office, masks and sanitizer in use. While our 2020 Festival of Loss and Healing was cancelled, we have not made a final decision about other upcoming events. Please check back here or on social media to keep updated.
The New West Hospice Society, founded in 2016, is dedicated to building a grassroots hospice initiative from the community level up, based on the Compassionate City model.
Our purpose is to acknowledge and affirm that dying, death and grief are part of life across the life span.
Follow us on this journey as we build a community where death is no longer hidden or whispered about, where people know what to say and do, and where residents can die with dignity and friends can grieve well.
Join us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for stories and updates while we develop our programs and services for New Westminster.
