June 20, 2018 - Annual General Meeting NSCC – Kings Tech Campus – 7pm
A hospice is more than a building – it is a philosophy - it is a community of care for the dying and the living.
We’re almost there . . . Our soon to be built Hospice is only possible because of the actively involved individuals who are engaged in this community. The Hospice will be well equipped with the comforts of home. There will be ten private bedrooms that open up to a wooded site located near Valley Regional Hospital.
May 6, 2018 - Annual Hike for Hospice
What a FABULOUS day! On May 6, 2018 the Annapolis Valley proudly joined others across Canada for the 6th annual Hike for Hospice raising over $20,000 for the Valley Hospice Foundation.
Hike for Hospice marked the start of National Hospice Palliative Care Week in Canada. The theme for 2018, “Towards a more compassionate Canada, Eh!” draws from the concept of the international Compassionate Communities movement and encourages us to consider ways community involvement can support the dying and bereavement process. www.chpca.net/week #MyCompassionateCanada.
The funds raised at the Hike will go toward the Valley’s Hospice Palliative Care Volunteer Program.
Volunteers are vital members of the hospice palliative care team. It is with special training and on-going education that they are able to spend their time supporting some of the most vulnerable members of our community. The dedication and support shown by volunteers is one reason palliative care is so widely regarded as compassionate care. The Valley Hospice Foundation is sincerely thankful for your help to make the Hike a positive and very successful activity. We hope to see you again in 2018!
This beautiful quilt was made and donated by Dr. Mary Joseph to help the Hospice.
Tickets ($5 each or 3 for $10) are being sold. The lucky winner will be drawn at our annual Holiday Gala – November 23, 2018
