Due to the ever changing Corvid-19 situation,
please phone 250-985-5800 prior to visiting the Quesnel Hospice House.
In the mid-1990s, the Quesnel & District Hospice Palliative Care Association knew Quesnel residents would benefit from having a dedicated Hospice unit. Thus a fundraising campaign began.
The community of Quesnel raised almost $1,000,000 towards the building and furnishing of a Quesnel's Hospice House. This included a five year campaign by the Quesnel Rotary Club that raised $100,000.
With the assistance of the QDHPCA, Quesnel residents, Northern Health, and the Cariboo Chilcotin Hospital Regional District, the dream came true in the summer of 2009 when the Hospice Palliative Care Unit opened at Dunrovin Park Lodge.
At the Hospice Unit, there are three dedicated palliative beds for people facing an end-of-life illness and three respite beds for community use. The Hospice Unit promotes a calm, serene environment where patients and families can spend their time together. Nurses trained specifically in palliative care provide dedicated, around-the-clock care.
If you feel the Quesnel Hospice Unit could be an option for you and your loved ones and would like to further explore this end-of-life-option, talk to your physician for a referral to this program.
