    Executive Director’s 2018 Report

    2018 was an exceptionally full and exciting year. PRHS served 99 individual clients, including those participating in the walking groups, and seniors program. 19 volunteers and staff provided one to one support for clients. In total, PHRS had 36 volunteers including those who worked with clients, helped with events, as well as board and committee members.

    Hospice has experienced high growth in recent years and 2018 was no exception. With our yearly increase in clients, although the number of clients in 2018 steadied, PRHS focused on increasing its volunteer capacity to meet these needs through its Compassionate Communities educational workshops: Hospice 101, Grief and Loss and for those who wished to become volunteers: Volunteering with Hospice – all workshops increased the community members’ compassion and knowledge of PRHS services. We held five adult workshops for 35 participants and two youth workshops for 15 participants; overall PRHS gained 11 new adult volunteers who completed their companioning training and all other requirements and are able to volunteer with clients. We continue to support Ahousaht community members in their grief. The Pacific Rim Hospice Society’s Director of Client Services, Thérèse Bouchard, visits Ahousaht, a First Nation community north of Tofino accessible via boat (45 min) or float plane (15 min) only, weekly (July and August bi-weekly). Thérèse travels by boat with the Nuu-Chah-Nulth Tribal Council’s community health nurses and provides drop-in grief support at Chah Chum Hiiyup Tiicmas, whereby adults can access a compassionate person who listens without judgment and in confidence to the stories people share. Any adult may attend grief support and there is no cost for this service. There are many traumatic deaths in the community from boat and plane accidents and suicides and this services supports many individuals Here’s what clients have said about Thérèse’s grief support in Ahousaht:

    “I have seen Thérèse numerous times, sharing with her the numerous losses that I have had in the last years and I always feel better after spending time with her, supported, more grounded, feeling stronger.”

    19 volunteers reported approximately 1758 hours of service in 2018 valued at $20/hour for a total of

    $19,840.00

    “Thérèse is a great listener and an awesome lady. She helps me feel stronger.”

    “Thérèse helps me feel lighter and helps me see clearer.”

    One of our priorities is supporting children, youth and their families through grief. As part of this focus PRHS hosted four Child and Youth Grief Workshops (two for community members and two for service providers) with Dr. Heather Mohan and Josh Dahling of Camp Kerry Society. 56 participants took part in the four days of training.

    Another highlight in the PRHS educational series was the Death and Dying workshop facilitated by Dr. Hans Terlingen – 25 individuals came out for an evening of stories and discussion about death, metaphysics, physiology and more!
