About Us

The Merritt Hospice Philosophy

No one should die or grieve alone.

Merritt & District Hospice Society provides trained volunteers who offer compassionate support and companionship to meet the needs of those individuals facing death and their families and support to those who are grieving. Volunteers visit in the home, the hospital or the care facility, offering such services as bedside sitting, ‘time out’ for the caregiver, companionship in the form of letter-writing, reading or other small tasks, and listening without judgement. Merritt & District Hospice Society is committed to providing support and understanding to the terminally ill, their families, caregivers, and the bereaved together with creating community awareness of the Hospice philosophy.

Grief is as unique as a person's fingerprint.

Grief Support

We are here to help you through this difficult journey.

In our grief we may often feel sad, alone, misunderstood, isolated, bewildered, angry and guilty. Coping with tasks of daily living can feel overwhelming and exhausting. We may feel abnormal or crazy. We may be reluctant to burden our family or friends with the story of our loss. Although these feelings are all part of the normal grieving process, many of our friends do not understand when we feel this way.

Merritt Hospice volunteers are available to support you through this difficult journey, with one-to-one support for a short period of time or through our ‘Living With Loss’ support group.
