Interior Health is committed to helping you and your family live well with advancing illness in your home community for as long as you wish. Most people prefer to remain in their home for as long as possible, including support to die at home if this is their choice.
In British Columbia, you can access a community hospice bed to receive palliative respite care or to stabilize your symptoms and then return home. Or you may wish to be in a community hospice bed during the last days or weeks of your life as a chosen place to die.
These types of beds are located in free standing hospice houses (where available), or in long-term care facilities where rooms are specifically designed to be more “hospice-like.” Speak with your Home Health nurse to learn the current per diem (per day) fee associated with these beds or your options to apply for a temporary rate reduction.
Interior Health is fortunate to have many hospice societies and organizations within Interior Health. Hospice societies and associations offer invaluable services to their local communities including volunteer support, grief counselling, advance care planning workshops, and much, much more. Here is a list of the hospice organizations within our health care region.
