Campbell River Hospice Society

The Campbell River Hospice Society exists to provide compassionate support and companionship to meet the needs of individuals facing death, their families and their friends, and to those grieving a loss due to death. We are a dynamic non-profit society that offers end-of-life care and bereavement (grief) support services to the people of Campbell River and surrounding area free of charge.
