Who is New West Hospice Society
The New West Hospice Society is dedicated to building a grassroots hospice initiative from the community level up, based on the Compassionate City model.
Founded in 2016, a major underlying purpose of the New West Hospice Society is to acknowledge and affirm that dying, death and grief are natural parts of the life-cycle. The overarching mission of the NWHS is to provide services and to facilitate processes for those in New Westminster experiencing end-of-life and bereavement. They envision a city in which dying, death and bereavement are normalized and where community bonds enable each other to live to their fullest in their communities during illness and dying, and through bereavement.
