The directory has eight major categories plus a library of additional website links.
- Advanced Care Planning
- Care Facilities and Hospices Houses
- Counselling and Support Services
- Government Services
- Home & Community Health – LOCAL – Interior Health, Salmon Arm
- Integrative Therapies
- Medical Services – LOCAL – Shuswap Area

“ Just as dying is part of the life of an individual, and part of the life and history of a family, caring for those among us who are dying is part of the ongoing life of the community.”
Dr. Ira Byock, Hospice/Palliative Care Physician
