Comfort for patients and families Moog and Friends Hospice House is a very special place in our community.
The sense of refuge and peace are evident as soon as you enter the house.
When my family was experiencing the impending loss of my daughter Stephanie in January 2005, the staff and volunteers were amazing, they were willing to listen and support us. Their compassion and care for each of us, and especially for Stephanie, was very comforting. The house became a gathering place for all who cared for and loved Stephanie.
For me, our time spent at hospice house was very spiritual and healing; that experience influenced my decision to volunteer. Assisting the staff with the meal service and odd jobs, and talking with the patients and their families is easy when you realize how much your service is appreciated.
As we observe National Hospice Week, it is comforting to know that Penticton has a first class hospice facility to provide end of life care and comfort for patients and their families.
