Vigil Support

A caring and trusted group of volunteers make themselves available to sit at the bedside of someone who is within the last 72 hours of life. If possible, vigil support is provided 24 hours a day so that no one is alone. Volunteers may also offer to stay with the family if they feel a need for support.

If you wish for more information on this service, please contact the White Rock South Surrey Hospice Society at: 604-531-7484 or email us.


I just wanted to thank you so much for your support and caring. Your Vigil Team showed so much compassion for my Mom whom they had never met. I appreciate them comforting her throughout the nights and their thoughtful journal writings. As I awoke frequently throughout the night, it was helpful to know someone was with Mom, or just arriving. Mom had a difficult journey but I believe it was eased by such kind, thoughtful individuals such as yourselves....
