Nelson and Area

Nelson & District Hospice Society serves Nelson, Kaslo and the East Shore


A picturesque city on the West Arm of Kootenay Lake in British Columbia, Canada with a population of just over 10,000, Nelson boasts a diversity of services and opportunities attracting people from around the world to experience its natural beauty and relaxed Kootenay lifestyle.

A Brief History

Nelson & District Hospice Society began as a small volunteer meeting in 1984 with a few people dedicated to improving service to residents approaching the end of their lives. Since then it has grown into a flourishing volunteer organization providing service to a large geographic area extending along the North Shore to Balfour and in the other direction all the way up to Slocan City. A pool of 45 trained volunteers support clients in their homes, the hospital and care facilities. We appreciate a close working relationship between ourselves, Community Home Nursing, the staff at Kootenay Lake Hospital and many other service providers in the community.
