Our Mission

The Red Deer Hospice Society will provide physical, social, emotional and spiritual care in a community based, home-like setting for individuals who are dying and for their loved ones.

Our Vision

The Red Deer Hospice Society recognizes death as a part of life’s journey. Our commitment is to provide compassionate care so people can die in peace, comfort and dignity with support for them and their loved ones.

About Our Charity

The Red Deer Hospice is a free standing residential end-of-life care facility located in the quiet neighborhood of Anders on the Lake in south Red Deer. Our ten private rooms ensure peace, intimacy and dignity for residents and family.

Our life-affirming approach provides an alternative to hospitalization or care in the home. Our care follows the hospice palliative care philosophy of advocating for the needs of the terminally ill; care that neither hastens death nor prolongs life but preserves quality of life, emphasizing living fully until the end in comfort and with dignity. Focus is placed on the physical, emotional, spiritual and psychological needs of the resident and their loved ones.

With comfort and compassion our main priorities, residents are assessed on an ongoing basis; pain is effectively managed and the treatment plan is adapted to respond to changing conditions. With 24-hour professional nursing care, trained staff and volunteers, we work together to ensure that each resident receives individualized care. Loved ones are informed and active decision makers.

Eligible clients will be those who have been diagnosed with a terminal illness and are declared to be palliative. The admission process to the Hospice starts with a conversation with your physician, charge nurse or home care nurse. Referral and admission are directed by Alberta Health Services (AHS) Home Care Case Manager. Admission to the Hospice is based on medical criteria not the client’s ability to pay.
