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!
