Colchester East Hants Hospice Society Launches Donation Campaign

Colchester East Hants Hospice Society Launches Donation Campaign

For Immediate Release
September 1, 2015

Truro, Nova Scotia – Craig Johnson, Executive Director of the Colchester East Hants Hospice Society, is appealing to the community for support this September: “Hospice is truly community built and client focused, and in order to meet the growing demand for service we need continued financial support.”

Colchester East Hants Hospice Society provides care and support to families as they face terminal illness, death, and grief. Hospice volunteers and professionals work closely with the Palliative Care team under a philosophy of care that values quality of life until death; putting the patient at the centre and in control of his or her own life and care.

Hospice receives no government funding, and must raise each dollar required to meet program demands: “on the average about 500 people die in Colchester East Hants annually, of those 300 will have a direct experience with the Hospice/Palliative Care team. Our population is aging, and the demand for Hospice service is growing rapidly,” says Johnson.

Hospice programs, such as Food From the Heart – which help provide basics to families facing financial challenges associated with end of life – are crucial. The services provided by Hospice place a focus on quality of life for the client, the family, and our entire community.

Individuals interested in making a donation to the Colchester East Hants Hospice may visit 89 Queen Street in Truro, or donate online at www.cehhospice.org/donate

"My advice to you all is to make those bucket lists and to start filling them in. Life is short and it only runs out; I should know, I was only 44." - Shannon Churchill
