The importance of offering resources is to help remove some of the apprehension and mystery of the experience of caring for someone with a life-threatening illness at home. Our aim is to encourage more active and informed participation by both the person who is ill, family members and caregivers. The intent of this service is not to duplicate the work of other groups or providers, but instead to enhance, mobilize and coordinate existing services.
The Delta Hospice Society provides a coordinated source of information, referral, education and support to enhance the abilities and energies of family caregivers. Information and support services, counselling and equipment loan are free.
Family caregivers can help themselves and those they are caring for by finding and utilizing appropriate resources. The contents on this web site will help you to know what is available and provide some direction throughout the journey of care giving.
