Accessing Hospice Care

You can be referred to hospice care via your family physician, homecare nurse, Home Hospice Team and/or medical teams in an acute care setting (e.g. a hospital). If you are a health care professional wanting to refer a patient, please visit our “Professionals” section.

All referrals are processed through the Palliative Access Line (PAL) Clinical Coordinator at 604-263-7255. Please fax referrals, with the required completed paperwork, to PAL at 604-872-7270. Please see our “Forms” section for all necessary documentation.

For clients who need referral to hospice but do not meet the criteria outlined above, contact your Palliative Care Consult Service, the Vancouver Home Hospice Program, at 604-742-4010 to review and support a hospice admission.
