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.

A second element focuses on future funding for our Hospice Home with the creation of a Legacy Video. Thank you to Linda Davies (Hospice Volunteer), Betty Fraser (Volunteer and Member of Compassion's Circle), Jim McPherson (Hospice Board of Directors) for assisting us in the creation of this video.

Please click on the photo to watch the video.

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 for Joining us as we "Walked a Block with Ian"

Approximately 30 people came out to support Ian Bos on his Cross-Canada journey to raise awareness of hospice/palliative care on Saturday, September 26, 2015.

Ian began his walk on May 21 in honour of his late father, Ted Bos. Inspired to walk across Canada in gratefulness for the hospice palliative care his father received before he passed away, Bos hopes to engage Canadians in the conversation regarding end-of-life care while raising $25,000 to support access to care in communities across the country.

To date, Ian's journey has raised $17,700 towards his goal of $25,000 for Aberdeen Palliative Care Society and hospice and palliative care societies across Canada as well as the Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association and Provincial Palliative Care Associations.

Ian is encouraging donations to be directed to the Red Deer Hospice on behalf of his journey to ensure that these local dollars stay within the community. You can do that

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, so in 2015 we adjusted our goals moderately and set them 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 Marian Cloutier at 403-309-4344 ext. 108.
