The QDHPCA Mission Statement
The Quesnel & District Hospice Palliative Care Association strives to promote compassionate care to those facing a life-limiting illness through patient and family-centered care with volunteer support. We achieve this through ongoing training, education, fundraising, and advocacy.
The QDHPCA Philosophy
The Association believes in the right of all persons to receive consistent physical, emotional, and spiritual support necessary to maintain individuality and dignity with living with a life-threatening illness and experiencing bereavement.
The Association believes in the right of the individual and family to know and discuss in whatever terms they wish, the extent of the disease and its implications.
The Association believes that those providing support for those living with a life-threatening illness must, themselves, receive consistent, planned, emotional and spiritual support, and have individual commitment to personal growth.
The Association believes that support, for those living with a life-threatening illness and their families, should be provided in the community by a multi-disciplinary team of professionals and volunteers.
