About Hospice Halifax
Our organization is a non-sectarian, mainly volunteer registered charity. Our members come from many walks of life but share the belief that every individual has the right to expect the best possible quality of life until the very end of life. People who are dying have very special needs which are not being met in spite of the vast resources of our health care system. These needs can be met by the concept of hospice. Hospice cares for the whole person and respects individual choice in defining the quality of life.
