Tell us about Hospice Halifax please!
"Hospice Halifax was founded in 2001 to provide the best possible end-of-life care for patients and their families. Since opening our doors to patients in 2018, we now welcome approximately 150 terminally ill patients facing the end of life, including vulnerable seniors, people living with physical disabilities, and people who are precariously housed. Our care extends to the community with regular one-on-one counseling, support groups, and programs for bereaved people looking for a safe, supportive environment to explore their feelings of loss. Our services are free-of-charge and accessible to all residents of Nova Scotia, with some exclusions"
What projects is Hospice Halifax currently working on?
"We have an amazing peer to peer fundraising event, Hike for Hospice coming up on Jun 11, 2023. Hike for Hospice is an energizing, family-friendly community walk that give people the opportunity to honour their loved ones and supports the great work happening at Hospice Halifax! The entire community is welcome and are encouraged to form a team, participate individually, or put in a team with their company. Stay tuned to our social media channels and website for information on participating!"
How does Hospice Halifax keep their supporters informed about your work?
"We keep our community connected through a variety of channels! We have an active social media presence on Facebook, Instagram and Linkedin (@HospiceHalifax) where we share updates on our programs, upcoming events, and stories from our patients and families. We also send out regular newsletters to keep our supporters up to date on our activities and upcoming events. More information on all of these topics can also be found on our website."
What would make the greatest difference in helping Hospice Halifax get better at what they do, or help the organization reach their goals?
"When you make a gift to or volunteer at Hospice Halifax, you provide someone in your community, and their loved ones, with the very best end-of-life care. We rely on the generosity of individuals and organizations to fund over 50% of our operations and programs. Donations of time, money, and resources all help us to continue providing quality end-of-life care to those in need. Every gift, big or small, makes a tremendous difference."
