WILDFLOWER SEEDS AND PINSwildflower campaign image 3

During the month of April, we are raising awareness of the many services offered by our hospice society, and others throughout the province.

Hospice Societies are valuable members of healthcare teams, offering a diversity of services aimed at improving the quality of life of individuals living with a serious illness and their loved ones and caregivers.

Show your support for Vanderhoof Hospice Society by blooming wildflower seeds or wearing a wildflower bloom lapel pin.  To purchase seeds contact one of our hospice members or contact Barb Ziler  or 250-567-8764.

Hike for Hospice 2023

May is Hospice and Palliative Care Awareness month across Canada and British Columbia. Throughout this Month, the Vanderhoof Hospice Society is working to raise awareness of the many services offered by our hospice society and any others throughout the province.

Join us on May 6th at the Vanderhoof Heritage Nature Trail for our Hike for Hospice. The trail loop is a well-groomed, wide, moderate elevation, 1.25km loop gravel trail that runs through the Vanderhoof Community Museum site and along Stoney Creek, up the far valley wall of the Nechako River, then returning back to the museum. Along the way visitors will enjoy a look-out spot onto Stoney Creek, wildflowers, mixed deciduous and conifer forest as well as viewing and hearing birds and other wildlife. This trail is appropriate for families and is wheelchair accessible.

Enjoy your walk on your own, or with friends and/family.  At the start and finish of the trail our  volunteers will be available for information, to accept donations if they are offered, and available to walk and talk about grief for those who would like to spend time talking with a volunteer trained in grief support.

Donations and funds raised will support the continued delivery of quality grief and bereavement support, symptom management, wellness programs, education and resource lending, respite, and many other services to our communities.

Donations of $20 or more to the Vanderhoof Hospice Society are eligible for a tax receipt.

Thank you for being a hospice ambassador to help spread the word!
