Did you know... Hospice has a wonderful community of volunteers who lovingly create our “lapghans".

Many of our lapghans, or lap blankets, are crocheted by the talented group pictured above at the Creative Café at the Valley United Church.

They regularly use their crochet skills to make sure that our volunteers are able to give these comforts of home to as many patients as we can on the Palliative Care Unit. For more information about our "lapghans" and how you can help out, please call (902) 893-3265, drop by our office, or message us on Facebook.

We asked Colchester East Hants Hospice Society Vice-President, Ricardo Garcia: Why is Hospice important to you?

"One of the precious things that we have in our life is family, who we could not live without. Originally from the Philippines, and growing up in a culture where family ties are valued the most, I certainly faced personal challenges when I moved to Canada almost a decade ago.

I created my own version of family with my friends, my patients in the long term care facility and the community that I served. As a registered nurse, I experienced grief and loss through people who were family to me; patients and friends. Fortunately, Hospice was there with us every step of the way. It gave me comfort and peace of mind to know that there were volunteers keeping a friend company when I was at work and to offer support to a patient after my visit.

To pay it forward, I volunteered to be part of the Hospice family knowing that Hospice resonates with my dream to build a more compassionate community."

Did you know... our Memorial Garden was created by the combined hard work of wonderful volunteers, plants and trees from Joanne Venner's Garden and a grant from the United Way?

People often remark how beautiful the garden is when it is in full bloom. That beauty is not possible without volunteers who love to work with the earth.

Here is our garden view from May 15, 2019. Watch our garden grow over the coming months... and be sure to check out our Garden & Chat events if you are interested in helping us out this season.

If you have a green thumb, or just love being outside with great people, contact us at (902) 893-3265, or send us a Facebook message.
