Hospice is usually appropriate when a person has a life expectancy of three months or less and when medical treatment is no longer an option.</p><p>For us, that means compassionate comfort-care of the person as a whole, not treatment of the disease. We aim to alleviate symptoms, maximize quality of life and provide a warm and home-like environment for residents and their loved ones.<br></p><p>Learn more at <a href="/your-care/home-community-care/care-options/hospice-palliative-care" title="Learn more about Hospice palliative care services at VCH (URL)">Hospice care - VCH.ca</a>.<br></p><p><br></p><p>This program is funded by Vancouver Coastal Health.<br></p></div>333 Powell Street(604) 606-0385<div class="ExternalClass8ACBA464F2BB4F7C9E0690AF98950A2E"><p>​This facility provides 24-hour nursing care.</p><p>There are no fixed visiting hours.
