We're Breaking Ground

Valley Hospice Foundation
Breaks Ground!


 

On October 26 the Valley Hospice Foundation were thrilled to join the Nova Scotia Health Authority, and the Nova Scotia Department of Health and Wellness to announce and celebrate the official sod turning for the Valley’s long awaited Hospice. There were plenty of cheers from over 75 “friends” of the Hospice who came out to celebrate this important event.

The Hospice will be located in a wooded area on a site near Valley Regional Hospital. It will sit on a knoll with the trees between it and Brooklyn Street in Kentville, NS. The site will connect residents to nature with each of the 10 bedrooms having their own opening outside. The site was noted by one observer to have a lifting sensation, which seems appropriate for a hospice. The energies of the trees, the hill and the river that flows below the site offers a metaphor for the circle and cycles of life.

Construction is slated to begin immediately.

Our Hospice

Our Hospice

Hospice does not cure a person’s disease, but it certainly can allow a story to end with dignity, love and peace.
