The Sunshine Coast has two hospice rooms and a family room at Shorncliffe Intermediate Care Facility. These rooms provide palliative patients and their families with a place to stay at the end of life when care at home becomes too challenging.
This provides a different experience than a room in a standard hospital might. Volunteers can visit to provide companionship as needed, and nursing staff provide medical care.
Our rooms are quiet, with a shared family room between them, and they open out onto a beautiful, tranquil perennial garden tended by Hospice volunteers. We encourage residents and families to bring keepsakes and belongings so their space can be as comfortable and familiar as possible.
Placement in Hospice is coordinated through the Palliative Care Team at Sechelt Hospital. Contact us at Hospice for more information.
