About Our Organization

Imagine a new reality, where hospice palliative care is available to Canadians when and where they need it; where living well through illness or until death is the goal of care. The palliative care approach focuses on the person and family, and on their quality of life throughout an illness, regardless of their age and background and not just at the end of life. It reinforces the person’s autonomy and right to be actively involved in his or her own care – and strives to give individuals and their families a greater sense of control.

North Okanagan Hospice Society supports quality of life to the very end of life. When medical intervention can no longer add days to life, we strive to add more life to each day.

The Society was incorporated in 1984 as a charitable organization with the purpose of supporting those with a palliative diagnosis, their loved ones and the bereaved. Initially formed as a small volunteer organization with a visiting program, the Society is currently recognized as a leader in the development and delivery of comprehensive hospice palliative care services.
