Welcome to Alliance Hospice: a division of Better Living
Alliance Hospice is dedicated to supporting people dealing with advanced illness, death, and bereavement. In the client’s home and community, our volunteers and staff provide practical, emotional, and spiritual support in collaboration with family caregivers, health care providers, and community support agencies. Our services are offered at no cost to the client.
Our primary goal is to help to make difficult life passages both manageable and meaningful for people facing life-threatening illnesses, end-of-life, or bereavement.
Hospice Palliative Care
Hospice care deals with physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs in a way that is sensitive to personal, cultural beliefs and practices. Hospice care is provided in a person’s home, not as an alternative, but as a complement to professional medical care.
How Alliance Hospice can help
Social workers on the case management team will work with you to coordinate your care. They provide information and education, work with other agencies to obtain service and coordinate care, and assign volunteers who can support you in your home.
Interim support services: This program supports clients who are in the early stages of, or in remission from, a life-threatening illness.
In-home volunteer services: In-home volunteers are care partners to the people we serve. They provide companionship to clients, practical and physical assistance, spiritual care, life review and legacy work, and respite for family caregivers.
Support and bereavement services
We support you on your journey through grief. Our bereavement staff and volunteers provide support for a range of losses from sudden death, to terminal illnesses, to multiple loss. Our services include counselling, volunteer support, facilitated bereavement groups, and remembrance events. Counselling and groups are offered for a fee, however a sliding scale is available.
