Fundraising to Care for The Dying Where they call Home...

Not as Easy as you Might Think

The greatest challenge?

 

How to change they way the Canadian society defines hospice or palliative care - most:

  • perceive it to be a building they go to in order to die 

  • hear the words “palliative care” and believe they have received a death sentence

  • look at dying as a medical event that requires intervention in order to do it well 

 

More significantly, we are faced with a funding need that relates to the one thing that as a society we want to ignore…death. 

While 100% of us will die, it is the one thing we do not want to face, talk about, or embrace. 

 

  • The need for quality, customized end of life care is not evident to the average person.

  • Giving money to provide someone with a good death is not perceived as a “feel good” donation. 

  • Delivering care wherever someone calls home prevents those needing a “naming reason” to donate a building with their name on it. 

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

Help us be there when you or someone you love needs us most
