The November winter weather has not stopped the progress of the Hospice. Since the groundbreaking ceremony the site has taken on the look of a construction site. Fencing is up, construction shelter has moved in along with some heavy equipment. The site has been brought down to grade and they are ready to excavate for the footings.

The designs and construction documents for the Hospice are now finalized and approved. The province has released a tender for the construction of the Hospice. It is scheduled to close on. The clearing of the land started on September 12, 2018 and is revealing a beautiful site for our Hospice to be built on a knoll overlooking Brooklyn Street and the Town of Kentville.
A hospice is more than a building - it is a philosophy - it is a community of care for the dying and the living.
As we work toward the opening of our hospice, we enter a new chapter of supporting enhancements that will ensure the best care possible for our community.
- Enhancing clinical care of patients with specialized equipment and therapies,
- Supporting hospice palliative care volunteer development and grief and bereavement programs,
- Enhancing the Hospice setting for family and patient comfort,
- Creating a learning "Hub" for families and patients, professional staff and the community
