We are currently working on a safety plan to be able to provide some in-home visits.We can and do, however, connect with and support clients using technology by telephone or internet. For more information or to make a referral, please call the Hospice office (250) 364-6204 and someone will contact you before the end of the next business day. GRIEF IS REAL. GRIEF IS A NORMAL RESPONSE TO LOSS. The COVID-19 Pandemic has intensified the normal losses of life. Throughout life we can all expect to lose loved ones due to death and we mourn those losses. However, we currently can’t share our sorrow by attending funeral or memorial services, or by hugging others who are hurting. Some people may also be struggling with loss of a job or business, loss of a feeling of security, loss of connections with friends and family, loss of your own health. A loss is a loss, regardless of what has caused it. The Greater Trail Hospice Society can support you as you grieve what you have lost. We have trained volunteers to listen to your story, help you understand what symptoms are normal during grief, and provide support so you can sift through your memories and pain, and move forward in life. Call 250-364-6204 to arrange an appointment. The British Columbia Hospice Palliative Care Association (BCHPCA) has launched its COVID–19 Hospice Impact Report on May 29, 2020, to provide a snapshot look into the impacts that hospices have been undergoing since the pandemic. This report is to highlight the three critical areas impacted: Donor and fundraising, Service and Program Delivery and Volunteer retention along with recommendations. DOWNLOAD PDF
