About our Hospice
The Crossroads Inlet Centre Hospice opened in 2003 in Port Moody. It is a ten private bedroom facility that represents an option for those with a terminal illness who are not able to stay at home yet do not need all the services of a hospital. Crossroads Inlet Centre Hospice patients live their final days with peace and comfort in a home-like setting where family, friends and pets are welcome. Crossroads Inlet Centre Hospice staff and volunteers bring a unique skill set in assisting our patients and families to live through the dying process, embracing the philosophy that death is accepted as a continuum of life.
Our non-smoking facility offers ten private bedrooms. Each room is fully furnished and has provisions for family members to stay overnight. A kitchen, dining room, family lounge, quiet room, relaxation room, family washroom and two rooftop gardens comprise the common living areas for patients and visitors to enjoy.
