Living with illness, dying, and grieving are normal parts of life that we will all eventually experience. At Coast Hospice, we support people to live well right to the end of life, and after death we support their family and friends as they grieve.
We believe those living with a terminal illness have the right to make their own choices about how they live and how they die and we endeavour to support them in those choices support with compassion and respect.
On July 25th, Denis Fafard, Donna Shugar and Jackie Scott made a presentation on behalf of the Board of Directors to the Regional Hospital District to outline plans for a new stand-alone Hospice facility on the Sunshine Coast, and to request support from the RHD.
We were very pleased by the enthusiastic support from the RHD for the service that the Sunshine Coast Hospice Society provides to the community, and their early commitment to support a new Hospice facility.

What people say about their experience with the Hospice Society…
The Sunshine Coast Hospice Society became a lantern of light, instilling rays of hope back into my life. This circle of support allowed me to learn the stages of grief, acknowledge the need to mourn in my own way, meet others who suffered loss, and experience deep healing through the cathartic process of telling our stories.
