Tragedies and Grief

Grief waves

We continue to experience devastating grief in our world, our country, our province and in our own communities. The last few months and weeks have been exceptionally heavy and we understand it can affect us all in different ways.

We are reminded again about tragedies of violence in our society that affect so many more people than those who are directly impacted.

For resources, please visit our website at www.cehhospice.org or if you feel you need to speak with someone directly, please reach us at (902) 893-3265.

We are here to help!

COVID 19 Response

COVID 19 Response

COVID 19 Response

These are such uncertain times we find ourselves in and as things continue to evolve in regard to the COVID-19 virus. We ask for everyone’s understanding and cooperation in order to keep our staff and those we serve safe and healthy.
Our team is committed to leading the way in finding innovative ways to support our community; however, all in person appointments and events are suspended effective immediately. We will be available by calling our office at (902) 893-3265 and will help any way that we can!
Please stay tuned for updates on our programs and services as we respond to this challenge. For now, one of the most important roles we can play is disseminating official information on how people can keep themselves and their loved ones safe. Government websites at all levels are updating information regularly.
Thank you!


Colchester East Hants Hospice Society and Dalhousie seeking older adults who might benefit from N-CARE volunteer visits.

The Colchester East-Hants Hospice Society has partnered with Dalhousie University to implement a program that aims to improve quality of life for seriously ill adults in the Truro area.

N-CARE—navigating, connecting, accessing, resourcing and engaging for adults with serious illness—was introduced by Assoc. Prof. of Nursing Barbara Pesut in cooperation with her colleague Dr. Wendy Duggleby from the University of Alberta. The program is designed to help people with serious chronic illnesses navigate community services and resources with trained volunteers.

New This Fall – Hospice Social Club!

Hospice Social Club

  • Hospice recognizes the mental and physical benefits of getting out of the house and coming together in the community. There are an abundance of groups, activities and events already happening in our community, so the Hospice Society has created a monthly social group to get you out and introduce you to what is going on!
  • Activities will vary from paint nights, to walks on local trails, to card nights, and more! Some activities will require registration and a fee however if this is a barrier for you then please do not hesitate to let us know as there may be subsidies available.
  • If you are interested in attending or have any ideas for future activities for the group please contact lpurdy@cehhospice.org or call our office at (902)893-3265!

"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."
