"With no government funding, the hospice society relies heavily on fundraisers and donations... Harrison says this change has already allowed the team to put their focus back on developing programs and services."

As we head into the weekend, don’t forget to visit our website for access to our grief and bereavement resources.

Included, you'll find information on:

• Coping with Grief for Adults
• Coping with Grief for Kids
• Rituals from Home
• And more...

If there was ever a time for a HUG, this is it. With our friend, @sherfitch, we are asking you to share a photo of you with your painted Hospice HUG to send a virtual HUG to those who need it in our community.

Tag us @cehhospice + use the hashtag #hugforhospice


Looks like you found one of our HUGS for Hospice, @sherfitch! Thank you for spreading the message. And a HUG right back to you. 🤗 #hugforhospice #sendahug #InThisTogether

Management of the Sobeys store on Prince Street in Truro donated flowers to @cehhospice which in turn donated them to staff and physicians at Colchester East Hants Health Centre. We are grateful to Sobeys for supporting the community even more than they already have.
