New West Hospice Society

New West Hospice: Helping to Build a Compassionate City through Good Neighbour Partnerships

Healthcare today can’t meet all the practical, social and emotional needs for people and families at end-of-life. These unattended needs often lead to isolation, loneliness and social inequality. New West Hospice Society is adopting the Compassionate City Charter to address 13 social changes to normalize dying, death and loss. Our Good Neighbour Partnership will link a person/family living with palliative care needs at home and those in their circle of community who are able to offer social and practical support. The issues around dying, death and grief have been shrouded in a “mind your own business” attitude. We believe that care for one another at this time is everybody’s business.
