Public Conversations & Resources

Many caregivers do not think of themselves as caregivers, they are just people who are caring for family members. They can truly benefit by having the availability of information or simply the opportunity to share experiences. A move towards a new chapter in our work to serve the community means finding opportunities to bring awareness to end-of-life issues through care-giver education, public engagement and partnerships.


Education and training is central to ensuring that no-one faces death or bereavement without the best care and support possible. Building the capacity of our care team through training and education grants is a good investment. Your donation will ensure that funding is available for staff to attend appropriate conferences, and for the development of opportunities for training in end of life, bereavement and palliative care in all care settings.

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.
