Merritt & District Hospice Society is committed to providing support and understanding to the individual, their families, caregivers, and the bereaved. A Palliative Approach focuses on comfort and support to the person and family, optimizing quality of life.

Volunteers visit in the home, the hospital or the care facility, offering such services as bedside sitting, respite for the caregiver, companionship in the form of letter-writing, reading or other small tasks, and listening without judgement.
Merritt Hospice engages in public education for Advanced Care Planning, Serious Illness and goals of care conversations, and optimizes community supports and education surrounding bereavement and grief supports.
