P & D Hospice Society ~ How can I help?

The Penticton and District Hospice Society is a non-profit charitable organization committed to supporting the operations of Hospice House and providing a grief counselling service to the community. The Society operates primarily on donations and your support does make a difference.

While Interior Health is responsible for much of the day-to-day operations of Hospice House, the Penticton & District Hospice Society provides significant annual funds to support services and programming at Hospice House.  It funds the coordination and training of our amazing team of over 82 volunteers, Lifelines (a direct connection to help in a medical emergency), patient and family amenities and comforts, Memorial Celebration events, and resource materials.

Situated amidst tranquil gardens, Hospice House offers a warm, welcoming, home-like setting.  Upkeep of the gardens and the water fountains, building upgrades, the provision of cable and telephone services, and free parking for families are also part of the Society’s financial commitment to Hospice House.

The Society understands the pain of grief and loss.  In response to needs of those who have lost a loved one to sudden death, suicide or illness, the Society provides bereavement resources and a referral service.  Complementing the services of Hospice House, the Society provides a place where grieving children and the adults supporting them can receive the support required
to nurture their resiliency and promote healing.

Your gift to the Penticton & District Hospice Society will make a difference.  It helps us to continue providing such indispensable support to individuals during their end-of-life journey at Hospice House and to those in the community who are left behind.
