We Can't Stop Tomorrow,
But We Can Be There Today!

For those who face a life threatening illness time takes on a new importance. The quality of that limited amount of time becomes paramount. Superior end-of-life care means the physical and emotional needs of the dying are sensitively met; pain is effectively managed, patients and their loved ones are well informed active decision makers and no one faces this journey alone. Hospice palliative care meets those needs by providing physical, emotional, psychological, spiritual and practical support to both patients and their loved ones. Red Deer Hospice brings family members, friends, volunteers, physicians, nurses, and other healthcare professionals together as a care-giving team so that residents can live their remaining days with dignity and in comfort.

The following video will give you a good introduction to the philosophy of

Hospice Care - that is

"to live fully until you die".

Introduction To Hospice Video



General and Memorial donations have always been and will continue to provide a solid foundation for our Society. Our belief is that with good stewardship they will continue to be a major source of income.

Current plans to foster and build a Legacy / Planned Giving program has included the re-introduction of Compassion’s Circle and the promotion of gifts to our Endowment Fund. A Wills & Estates Workshop was held on November 7, 2013. If you have any questions with respect to providing a Legacy Gift to Hospice, please contact Marian at 403-309-4344 ext. 108.

Fund a Day is our Annual Fundraising Campaign and each year it continues to grow. It is being viewed as a vehicle to sustainability as more and more supporters come on board.

Events will always be an integral part of our Fundraising Programme. Our winter Gala recently took place on January 17, 2014 and Voices for Hospices was on October 12, 2013. Upcoming events for 2014 include our Hike for Hospice, which is on May 4, 2014. As well, we will continue to seek and support Third Party Fundraising events and we will continue to run our Mulligans for Hospice fundraiser this summer.

We are so THANKFUL for the generosity of Central Albertans to provide compassionate end-of-life care to all in need.

If you have any questions about Fund Development please contact either Brenda Watts or Marian Cloutier at 403-309-4344.
