The Impact of Your Support
By donating to The Bello Project you support volunteers like Angela who are caring for pets in the homes of their dying owners. Keeping pets and their dying owners together sharing their love and companionship until death is one of the most compassionate services that we offer. Your donation purchases equipment to ensure the safety of the pet or to assist the volunteer with socializing the pet. Click here to make your tax deductible donation. Put The Bello Project in the "MESSAGE FOR HOME HOSPICE ASSOCIATION" to direct your donation to The Bello Project.
By donating to the Infant & Pregnancy Loss Doula Training Program you are helping to ensure that every community has more professionals like Sue available to provide support. Supporting families before, during and after a labour that will lead to a loss is a unique service that Home Hospice Association provides. Sue is also a Facilitator for a Home Hospice Association progressive healing group program called Our Babies, Our Grief. Your donation means parents needing this support can receive it free of charge. Click here to make your tax deductible donation. Put IPLD or Our Babies, Our Grief in the "MESSAGE FOR HOME HOSPICE ASSOCIATION" to direct your donation to the Infant & Pregnancy Loss Doula Training Program.
By donating to Death Cafes or CANDY Cafes you are opening the door to allow more people of all ages to come together and talk about their thoughts on dying, death and grief. Why is this important? Talking about death normalizes it so we are less afraid. Is this an appropriate conversation for children? Absolutely. Children need opportunities to talk about what they think happens when we die and how they feel when seeing a loved one grieving. Home Hospice Association Death Cafes are part of an international social movement. CANDY Cafes are uniquely our own. A donation specifically directed to CANDY Cafes can help us deliver this event to our chapters and community partners across Ontario. Click here to make your tax deductible donation. Put Death Cafe or CANDY Cafe in the "MESSAGE FOR HOME HOSPICE ASSOCIATION" to direct your donation to the Death Café or CANDY Café program.
The Impact of Your Support during this time of COVID19
A brand new idea we call: Voices of Love
Home Hospice Association Death Doulas have witnessed firsthand how clients near the end of their life who may appear to be non-responsive will immediately respond to the voice of a loved one. Facial expressions change, eyebrows may lift, eyes may appear to be moving, the forehead may furrow. One Death Doula recalls the reaction of their dying client when her granddaughter spoke to her by phone. As soon as she said “Hi Grandma, it’s your Peanut” the dying client’s eyebrows lifted. She knew who was talking to her; she knew who her Peanut was.
“We” need to be with our dying loved one ~ “They” need to hear our voice
Your donation to our Voices of Love Program allows us to purchase equipment and provide the support of a Death Doula to help meet the needs of our dying and to make it possible for the voices of their loved ones to be with them for their last days or hours. Click here to make your tax deductible donation. Put Voices of Love in the "MESSAGE FOR HOME HOSPICE ASSOCIATION" to direct your donation to the Voices of Love Program.
Home Hospice Association Death Doulas are committed to help fill the gaps existing in current end of life care provision in our country. One of the gaps we are working most proudly to fill is care before, during and after the provision of seeking Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD), with a pilot project called The Diana Pathway. Under the leadership of her husband Dan, The Diana Pathway supports the legacy of the first client that Home Hospice Association assisted when they sought MAiD. This project focuses on the organic internal development of establishing a specific and measurable system of best practices for the role that a Death Doula plays when someone is seeking access to MAiD.
