Red Deer Hospice Celebrates

10 Years of Compassionate Care!

What once was only a dream in our Founders' minds and hearts is now a cornerstone of our community. As the only stand-alone residential Hospice in Central Alberta, Red Deer Hospice has been a model for other communities to follow.

One element of our celebrations was to replace our Donor Wall with a new design that will allow us to recognize cumulative donors over the years and into the future.

A special event was held for all Capital Campaign and Cumulative Donors whose names appear on the new Donor Wall for the official unveiling on September 15, 2015.

More events will be planned throughout the year so everyone will have a chance to celebrate this wonderful milestone!


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.

Thank You 100+ Women of Central Alberta!!

We are so fortunate to have been awarded the donations from the September 2015 meeting of the 100+ Women Who Care Red Deer!

Donations received to date total approximately $19,500! Wow! Thank You Ladies for your generosity!!




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.


Our Legacy / Planned Giving program has included the re-introduction of Compassion`s Circle and the promotion of Legacy gifts to ensure a source of funding for the future of Red Deer Hospice. Please watch our video on Legacy Giving by clicking on the photo below.

If you have any questions with respect to providing a Legacy gift to Hospice, please contact Val Hilario, Executive Director at 403-309-4344, ext. 102.


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, so in 2015 we adjusted our goal moderately and set it at 500 days (or $204,000). THANK YOU residents of Central Alberta for supporting us in this year's campaign! Will you join us on our Journey to Sustainability?

Events will always be an integral part of our Fundraising Programme. Upcoming Events are:

  • Gala on Saturday, February 27, 2016
  • Hike/Run for Hospice on Sunday, May 1, 2016
  • Sunflower Ladies Luncheon in September 2016

In addition to our own events we are always excited when someone calls to tell us that they want to hold a Third Party Fundraiser on behalf of Hospice. And finally, summer would not be complete without running our Mulligans for Hospice. Thank you to each golf tournament organizer that invites us to attend!

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 Melissa Giroux at 403-309-4344 ext. 108.
