What People Say

“Our first few visits to the hospice were very guarded as our belief was that this was a place where people went to die. How wrong we were!  The hospice was a place where patients went to live out their lives in an amazing, warm, caring, and dignified setting where not only the patient, but the family’s needs were taken care of.  The entire staff, from the nurses, care-aides, doctors, and remarkable volunteers provide an environment that made the palliative care program a journey that was shared together as a family with support the entire way.  Truly remarkable!

“The palliative care program is one that most Canadians will use at some point in their lives and it is imperative that we support, grow, educate, and familiarize ourselves with this extremely important program.”

 – Roland



“Moog and Friends Hospice House is a very special place in our community. The sense of refuge and peace are evident as soon as you enter the house.

“When my family was experiencing the impending loss of my daughter Stephanie in January 2005, the staff and volunteers were amazing, they were willing to listen and support us. Their compassion and care for each of us, and especially for Stephanie, was very comforting. The House became a gathering place for all who cared for and loved Stephanie.”

 – Gail



“We recently said goodbye to the special woman who was our mother, grandmother and great grandmother.  This difficult time was eased by the attentive staff at Moog and Friends Hospice House in Penticton whom we wish to acknowledge for their exceptional care.

“Our local hospice is a warm home, clean, well decorated and casual – not at all institutional.  The staff and volunteers, though, are what makes Hospice House the special place it is.

“Our lost was tempered by the wonderful environment in which we said goodbye.  For as long as we will remember our mother, we will also remember the special people who cared for her during her last days with us.”

  – The family of Paula Acher



“I was able to confront my grief and receive the help I so desperately needed. I can’t imagine how I would have managed without the support I received and I’m so thankful that they were there.”
