Hospice services are as diverse as wildflowers

Hospice societies across BC and the Yukon provide many services that aim to improve the quality of life of individuals living with life-limiting conditions, while also ensuring the well-being of their caregivers and loved ones impacted by their illness or death.

We are kicking off Hospice Month by launching our first annual Wildflower Bloom Campaign. To honour hospices throughout BC and the Yukon, wildflower seed packets are being sold as a fundraiser for hospice societies as well as to raise awareness of the ways hospices support their communities.

Hospices support the diverse psychosocial needs of people with serious illnesses and their loved ones through a variety of services and in a variety of settings including in-home, long-term care homes, hospitals, and assisted living residences. They also run education programs for the general public to raise awareness and knowledge of the benefits of hospice care and how to access these services when needed. Nearly 80% of these services are delivered by a core team of skilled volunteers.

Hospice Societies: Providing Integral Palliative Care Service

We are facing an important demographic shift in the coming years that will lead to growing demands for hospice care. By 2036, one-quarter of the BC’s residents will be over the age of 65. Our Hospice Societies will continue to play an integral part in helping to meet the increased demands and current gaps in the system, which have been further fueled by COVID-19. Together, let’s raise awareness of all of the important services that hospices deliver to all people in all of our communities.

How to Bloom Your Wildflowers in Honour of Hospice Societies 

Create a spectacular garden of popular wildflowers in various shapes and sizes. Provides exceptional beauty and colour all season long!

 Planting Directions: 

  1. Shake bag of seeds well before planting. 
  2. Sow seed in a sunny or partially shaded location in early spring (after the danger of frost has passed) or early summer. Clear the area to be planted. Loosen soil to a depth of 5cm (2”) with a rake or hoe. Smooth soil surface by raking. 
  3. Evenly scatter the seed mixture over the prepared area. The organic vermiculite contained in the seed mixture aids in proper seed distribution. Lightly rake again to create a good seed/soil contact. 
  4. Keep seed bed moist.
  5. Lightly water immediately after sowing, using a fine spray. Avoid puddling. Keep seed bed moist until seedlings are well established. 
  6. Continue to water periodically as needed.
