Hyder Hospice Unit
Welcome to the Hyder Hospice Unit
When faced with a serious illness, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. You’re likely to have questions, fears and concerns, and it can be difficult to know where to turn. Whether you’re the patient, caregiver, or a concerned loved one, you want to find resources, options, and support. It’s important to know that you’re not alone, and that we’re here to help.
Most people with a life-limiting illness prefer to remain at home. We recognize and appreciate that preference, however we also recognize that staying at home is not always possible – especially if the progression of disease causes complications that become difficult to manage in the home. That’s why, with help from the greater community, the Hyder Family Hospice House opened in 2007.
“Although words cannot express it, I tell everyone how easier my dad’s passing on to his journey was for me. My mom’s transition to her new life without dad has been softened by your care and a beautiful surrounding.”
