The Delta Hospice Society is a non-profit charitable organization incorporated in 1991 in Delta, British Columbia. We are a community-based organization that exists to help individuals and their families experiencing a life-threatening diagnosis, advanced illness or bereavement, live with comfort, meaning, dignity and hope.
The Society has a strong volunteer component with over 130 active, specially trained volunteers who work with individuals and families at the Irene Thomas Hospice, the Harold & Veronica Savage Centre for Supportive Care and through community outreach. Another 130 volunteers operate the Hospice Cottage Charity Shoppe. A member volunteer board of directors governs the Society.
In any setting, our team of trained volunteers, staff, and professional counsellors offer sensitive and supportive care to meet the needs of those who come to us. Practical, emotional, spiritual, and educational supports, advocacy, and medical care are offered through our Supportive Care Centre, our Community Outreach Programs and in our hospice residence.
As well as serving the communities of North Delta, Ladner, and Tsawwassen, Delta Hospice is actively involved in advocating for hospice palliative care services at the local, provincial, and national levels. Members of the hospice team are respected and recognized leaders in the development and delivery of unique hospice palliative care programs and volunteer services.
