Website Crossroads Hospice Society
Founded over 30 years ago, Crossroads Hospice Society has had the honour of serving the Tri-City communities of Anmore, Belcarra, Coquitlam, New Westminster, Port Coquitlam and Port Moody. As a non-profit society, Crossroads Hospice Society supports its communities through its Community Grief and Loss Support Centre for Adults and Youth, and its Thrift Store.
Additionally, the Crossroads Hospice Society works in partnership with Fraser Health to operate a 10-bed stand-alone hospice residence. The Hospice allows individuals to live their final days with peace and comfort in a home-like setting where family, friends and pets are welcome. Crossroads Hospice Society is supported by an incredible team of employees and more than 200 volunteers.
