At Friends of Hospice we recognize that life limiting illnesses have an impact far beyond the person diagnosed. Caregivers, family members and friends can all be affected and be in need of help and support themselves. Friends of Hospice works alongside the hospital staff to provide additional programmes and services that help enhance the quality of life of both hospice patients and their families. For example, we were able to raise funds to bring Internet access and Skype to each hospice bed so that patients and family members could more easily connect with loved ones who are unable to visit.
Friends of Hospice currently funds and operates the following programmes and services (click on the programme or service to learn more)
