More information about The Salvation Army’s Rotary Hospice House:
Richmond Rotary Hospice is a community which honours life, values humility and shares hope.
Fifteen years ago, individuals in the community of Richmond initiated the idea of a community-based hospice, an option to hospital and home for individuals and their families at end of life.
They created a partnership between the Rotary Club of Richmond and The Salvation Army, one based on a shared vision of the need for and value of hospice care. The Provincial Government, through Vancouver Coastal Health, supported this initiative. Rotary Hospice House is the result.
