Thank You: The Sponsorship Campaign of 2023 was very successful and that we thank all of those who supported us

Please Make A Difference By Supporting Our Yearly Hospice Campaign

 The Hospice Society of the Columbia Valley is launching an Annual Sponsorship Campaign. The Society was founded ten years ago and has grown to offer a wide variety of support programs and outreach. 

Sustainable funding is key to the Hospice’s ability to provide free essential community services over the long term. This Annual Sponsorship Campaign is a great opportunity for businesses and major donors in our communities to support the much-needed presence of the Hospice in the Columbia Valley.

We cannot continue to provide our services without the communities’ support.

 Although the Hospice Society of the Columbia Valley provides services that are an integral part of the health care system, it receives only limited provincial and municipal government funding. The Society relies on community members and the business community for most of its funding. In addition, the Society organizes fundraising events, which the community enthusiastically supports. 

The Hospice Society is managed by an executive director and a small paid staff. The board of directors is comprised of representatives of several of the communities in the Hospice’s service area, which covers Canal Flats, Fairmont Hot Springs, Windermere, Invermere, Wilmer, Radium Hot Springs, Edgewater, Brisco, Spillimacheen and the surrounding rural areas. The Society has established ties with the Secwepemc (Shuswap) and Ktunaxa (Akisq’nuk) First Nations and the Métis Peoples in the area and provides support when requested. 

Trained volunteers accompany people reaching the end of their lives in their homes or institutional settings to help ensure they continue to have the highest quality of life possible and have a chance to share their life story. Volunteers can also keep vigil during the last hours of a person’s life. Walking with those who have lost loved ones is equally important. Volunteers help people work through their grief through one-on-one visits or support groups. Special programs have been set up for children and youth. A qualified clinical counsellor is available for people who are struggling with complicated or 

 traumatic grief. In addition, anticipatory grief programs are available to people who are anticipating the death of a loved one to help them navigate the end-of-life journey. A new program, Nav-CARE, part of a national network, was added recently. This program helps adults of all ages living with chronic or life-limiting illness not only by providing consistent emotional support but also by connecting them with the community services and resources they need to live a full life. Dying is a natural part of life, just as birth is. Birth has its uncertainties, challenges, pain but also joy. Death is the end of a life’s journey with its own uncertainties, challenges, pain but ultimately peace. That companioning support is woven into the very fabric of our caring community. The funding received is managed ethically, effectively, and professionally. The staff and volunteers are passionate about the work they do. There are so many ways to give to the Hospice Society of the Columbia Valley either through Regular Donations, Monthly Pledges, Endowment Fund or Legacy Giving. No amount is too small. For more information about the campaign or to speak to someone please call 778-526-5143, 250-688-1143
