Q: Why do we need a hospice when we are getting a new hospital?

A: Cowichan Hospice House is a companion project to the new hospital. It will immediately provide a more appropriate and cost effective option for those who cannot be cared for at home at the end of their lives, but who don’t need acute care in the hospital.

Q: Are there residential hospice facilities in other communities on the Island?

A: The Cowichan Region is the only community of our size on the Island without a residential hospice program.
