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.


Over the last few months we have held an Online (and parallel In-House) Art Auction, as a way to disperse the many beautiful pieces of art that once adorned the walls of our Hospice Home, prior to our Hospice Home Makeover.

Thanks to a wonderful Hospice supporter, who shared his idea to hold an Art Walk for Hospice, we've been able to modify his idea slightly and have been successful in raising funds via this method instead.

Each month we display a new piece of art right here on our website, as well as on our Facebook page. The original piece of Art will also be on display at the Hospice. Bids will be accepted via Facebook, by email to or by phone at 403-309-4344 ext. 108.

For the month of November the following "Autumn Field" by Jim Wiens is up for Auction. This is a very large piece, approximately 52" wide by 28" tall, so it will be a great piece for a feature wall in your home or office.

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! We have set our 2014 goal at 420 days of care (or $151,200), and are looking forward to meeting (and hopefully beating) this goal in the next 2 1/2 months!

Events will always be an integral part of our Fundraising Programme. Recent events include our Sunflower Ladies (HandBag) Lunch, held on September 24, 2014, and our team participation in the national Ride for Refuge on October 4, 2014. Next in line will be our Chef's Gala on February 6, 2015 and our Hike 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.

If you have any questions about Fund Development please contact Marian Cloutier at 403-309-4344 ext. 108.
