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.

We are very pleased to welcome two new members to the Hospice Board of Directors, Dr. Kim Adzich and Catherine Rispler, who will be our new Treasurer.
They, along with two existing Board Members, Dick McDonell and Pastor Gary Bomhof, were voted back in for a 2nd term on the Board.
We also want to bid a fond farewell to a very dedicated man, Darwin Cooper, who has been our Treasurer on the Board for the last five years. Thank you so much for sharing your time and your talents, Darwin! Best wishes in all your future endeavours!!
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 2014, we gathered support for 459 days of care! THANK YOU residents of Central Alberta for another successful campaign!! With a New Year upon us we have set our 2015 goal at 500 days of care (or $204,000). Will you join us on our Journey to Sustainability?
Events will always be an integral part of our Fundraising Programme. Recent events include our Chef's Gala on February 6, 2015, our team participation in the national Ride for Refuge on October 4, 2014 and our Sunflower Ladies (HandBag) Lunch, held on September 24, 2014. Next in line will be our Hike / Run for Hospice on May 3, 2015. As well, we will continue to seek and support Third Party Fundraising events and we will continue to run our Mulligans for Hospice fundraiser each summer.
We are so THANKFUL for the generosity of Central Albertans to provide compassionate end-of-life care to all in need.
