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.

FUNDING OUR

HOSPICE HOME

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 Legacy gifts to ensure a sustainable source of funding for the future of Red Deer Hospice. 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. In 2013, we gathered support for 373 days of care, so for the first time in the 5-year history of Fund a Day, we can say that one of our ten rooms at Hospice is fully funded by Fund a Day supporters!

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 and our Sunflower Ladies (HandBag) Lunch will be held on September 27, 2014. Stay tuned for more details as they are confirmed. 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.
