Hospice is about living!

Vigil Support

Peace, Dignity and Acceptance

A caring and trusted group of volunteers make themselves available to sit at the bedside of someone who is within the last 72 hours of life. If possible, vigil support is provided 24 hours a day so that no one is alone. Volunteers may also offer to stay with the family if they feel a need for support. We ensure that each person is cared for by compassionate, non-judgmental, knowledgeable people who will listen quietly and provide as much comfort as possible.

For many, being in the presence of someone who is near death is very difficult. We believe that the best help family members and friends can provide at this time is to be accepting of death, and allow their loved one to pass peacefully.

If you wish for more information on vigil support, please contact the Peace Arch Hospice Society at: 604-531-7484 or email us.
