About the PG Rotary Hospice House
The Rotary Hospice House is designed to provide Guests, families, and friends with an atmosphere that feels like home. The house has ten guest rooms all equipped with a private two-piece bathroom, electric bed with ceiling mounted lift, sleeper surface couch, reclining mobile chair, smart flat screen TV, isolated heating and cooling, and large window. The House’s kitchen employs an open dining concept with a fireplace and television. The House also includes a children’s playroom, meeting room, quiet room, den, and a bedroom for overnight visitors. The Hospice House layout is aimed to allow families to remain in the company of their loved ones at all hours, whether during care or at night.
The Hospice House is located at 3089 Clapperton Street in Prince George, BC.
Thank you so much for everything. You are all truly ‘special people.’ Everyone worked so diligently and did so much to make my husbands days as pain free and comfortable as possible. And to care for me and my daughter with our own sorrow, I can’t thank you enough!
Guests and families are invited to enjoy the grounds of the Rotary Hospice House. The grounds of the Hospice House include a tent which can accommodate up to 40 people (available for rent for Celebrations of Life), a labyrinth with beautiful trails to walk, outdoor play set with swings, a lovely garden and patio with bench seating areas, and a gas barbeque.

The difference in care at the Prince George Hospice House is displayed by our dedication to complete comfort for our Guests:
- There are no restrictions on the number or age of visitors
- Visiting hours are unlimited
- Family pets are allowed to visit and may stay 24 hours a day
- The Guest’s family physician continues to provide care throughout their stay
- Guests are encouraged to bring personal belongings
- We have alternative therapies such as hairdressing, foot and nail care, massage, and therapy dogs available through external companies, and there is a cost for some of these services.
Although there is a small user fee, Guests are only expected to pay what they can afford, and no one is ever turned away due to financial reasons. Donations are gratefully accepted from friends and visitors for coffee, tea, meals, etc.
On admission Guests are asked to bring in all medications from home. The Palliative Care Benefits Program and the Pharmacare Plan, with some exceptions, cover medications. These exceptions may include over the counter medication, some prescriptions, and dispensing fees, which are paid for by Hospice then billed to the guest. Medications are administered by registered nurses and are ordered through a contracted pharmacy. Guests are requested to bring in their oxygen concentrator from home if they are using one.
