Our Hospice

New Valley Hospice


The Valley Hospice Foundation aims to ensure that the experience of dying, death and bereavement in the Annapolis Valley is as gentle and supportive as possible.

Our current focus is to build and furnish our residential Hospice. Planning is underway for a 10 bedroom hospice to be located on a treed property adjacent to Valley Regional Hospital.



A hospice is more than a building - it is a philosophy - it is a community of care for the dying and the living.

As we work toward the opening of our hospice, we enter a new chapter of supporting enhancements that will ensure the best care possible for our community.

  • Enhancing clinical care of patients with specialized equipment and therapies,
  • Supporting hospice palliative care volunteer development and grief and bereavement programs,
  • Enhancing the Hospice setting for family and patient comfort,
  • Creating a learning "Hub" for families and patients, professional staff and the community

Hospice will be filled with 'light' and 'spirit' - Novanewsnow.com

Please Support Our Work

Our scope of support encompasses key issues affecting hospice and palliative care.

While some choose to direct their gifts to a specific area that’s near and dear to their hearts, often the best way to make an impact is by giving an unrestricted gift. This type of gift enables support of important needs as they arise.

When you give a gift you can be sure that we will put your gift to good use in the area of care that will benefit most from your generosity.

One would want to go out surrounded by calm-orderly, unhurried, unbossy. There is no reason why this can’t happen.

“During the five years of our Dad’s condition, we were fortunate to have a great support system, with amazing friends and family. Our family can’t express enough how thankful we are for this support system. Dealing with end of life for a loved one, we were able to witness firsthand and understand the necessity of a Hospice in the community”.

A volunteer sat with my mother and me at my dying father’s bedside at VRH several years ago. Her gentle warmth and compassion eased our stress and sadness during the last day of my father’s life.
