We asked Colchester East Hants Hospice Society volunteer Keltie Bruce: Why is Hospice important to you?

"Hospice has added an important level of care available to patients and their families that many communities do not have access to. As a hospital visitor I see this regularly. Families are so appreciative of the services provided on a journey that is always stressful and sometimes lonely. It is a privilege to be able to help during that journey.

The care and professionalism exhibited by the staff on all levels is remarkable. As the Society grows I hope that more and more people will access the varied programs offered and that Hospice and palliative care will be more widely available everywhere."
