Our History

After World War 2, Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross found drawings and carvings of butterflies on concentration camp walls. The butterfly symbolizes the transition between life and death, and is used by Hospice Societies worldwide

As an organization, Hospice was begun by Dr. Cicely Saunders in London, England, during the 1960’s at Saint Christopher’s Hospital (the saint of travelers). Dr Saunders was knighted in 1960 for her work in palliative care.

In 1981 Dr. Helen Hays brought hospice to a hospital in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada

In 1987, Dr. William Mitchell-Banks and Rev. Harry Haberstock founded the Creston Valley Hospice Society.
