Take a Tour Of The Kamloops Hospice Home
The Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Memorial Hospice Home is operated by the Kamloops Hospice Association. We are a non-profit organization that received its status as a society in December of 1981. It was the vision of a small group of people including Marjorie Willoughby Snowden that led to the formation of our Association. It came from a sincere desire to support those diagnosed with a life-limiting illness. In 1983 the first patient volunteers were trained to assist with clients in the community and since, we have served thousands of people and their families in the surrounding area by providing community programs and services. On February 16th, 2004, our home opened with six beds, and in 2008 we started on an expansion for six more beds. Today we operate 12 beds, a thrift store and community programs. Our home is partially funded through a contract with Interior Health, fundraising and generous donations from our community.
