Wherever you lay your head, we will make a hospice bed
We have chosen to find a solution to a need impacting more people living in Canada than all other medical or social justice issues combined. 100% of us will die. 60% of us will die from something other than “natural causes”. No member of our Association wants to leave our support (should we be told by the doctor “there is nothing more we can do”) or the support of our loved ones to chance.
Imagine…families being able to host a Halloween Party in July
Imagine…families not having to agonize over “who” gets to stay because of limiting visitor policies…
Imagine…respecting someone’s dying religious and cultural needs
Imagine…not dying in the hospital alone among the commotion of emergency care
Why Your Support Matters
Home Hospice Association does not receive any health care dollars in any province. We are only able to meet our goal that no one will walk the journey to death alone through the generosity of those individuals and businesses who believe that; as the Dalia Lama explains it:
“As newborn babies each of us was helpless and, without the care and kindness we received then, we would not have survived. Because the dying are also unable to help themselves, we should relieve them of discomfort and anxiety and assist them, as far as we can, to die with composure.”
For many there will be a cure; but for many more there will not. Those who are at the most vulnerable time in their lives deserve our support.
