The Sea to Sky Community Hospice is a partnership between the Squamish Hospice Society and Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH).

Our mission statement

To provide specialist care to patients, caregivers and families who are facing complex physical, emotional and practical difficulties arising from advanced progressive life-limiting illness.

We believe in respecting the individual’s dignity and choices and enhance the quality of care for patients in all care settings through partnership, collaboration, advice and education.

We recognize that our greatest resource is our highly trained and skilled workforce and the community of volunteers and supporters who have together developed the strong sense of shared ownership enabling us to excel.

Philosophy of care

To promote living life and making every moment count and to ensure that our environment includes the essential supportive services needed to meet personal, emotional and practical needs, as well as treating the medical symptoms.

Our vision

To provide accessible, auditable and accountable end of life care, reflecting evidence-based practice.
We have a team of experienced care providers including Nurses, doctors, counselors and a large group of volunteers who provide extra support.
