The mission of the Comox Valley Hospice Society is to provide compassionate care and support to individuals in the last stages of living and to their families and the bereaved.
Values provide a touchstone for grounding us in the many major or minor situations that we face in life. Our values can
help us respond in consistent, effective and meaningful ways.
At CVHS, we believe that each of us has the right to die pain-free and with dignity, and that our loved ones and caregivers will receive the necessary support to allow us to do so. This spirit governs relationships among clients, families, staff, volunteers and
those with whom we serve from the community.
Client Focused Care and Service—the client is the centre of all activities and is entitled to individualized,
compassionate quality care and service.
Personal Autonomy and Choice—we believe that individuals retain their rights to personal autonomy and choice,
informed consent and established standards of care. It is understood that personal autonomy
includes respect for the rights and safety of others.
Excellence and Innovation in Care and Service—we strive for excellence in care and innovation in programming.
Collaboration and Team Work—we believe that through collaborative interdisciplinary team process we continue
to achieve the highest quality of care in all activities.
Trust, Honesty and Integrity—we believe that these are the values that guide our interactions with our clients,
families, employees and volunteers.
