Hospice Society extends survey deadline

They aren't getting the responses they wanted, so they're taking a bit more time

Not getting as big a response as they hoped, The Oceanside Hospice Society has extended a survey on loss, grief and end of life care issues to July 22.

The local society started canvassing local residents about the services they provide, to give them a better sense of the community’s needs, in early June and extended the original June deadline in the hope that they will get more response.

The society aims to “promote the integration of comprehensive, high-quality and seamless delivery of end of life care and hospice palliative care” in the region and are looking for feedback on what people know about their services, how they are doing and what people would like to see as priorities.

They suggest it will only take five minutes and “will make a real difference to what we know about our community needs.”

They ask people to take the survey online at www.surveymonkey.com/s/oceanside by July 22. Paper copies can be found at their office at 210 Crescent Road West, Qualicum Beach, call 250-752-6227 or e-mail oceansidehospice@shaw.ca.
