Cowichan Valley Hospice volunteers support people doing what they need to do and saying what they need to say at a very precious time of their lives, before and after a death occurs.
Hospice volunteers provide emotional care for the dying and the bereaved. Supported by a Board of Directors and a permanent staff of four, 140 hospice volunteers provide services to people living from Ladysmith to the Malahat, including the communities at Lake Cowichan.
