HOSPICE HEART STORIES


The gentlest way for the worst to happen


In August 2018, when the at-home treatments were not sufficient in managing her pain, Pam decided that she would like to move into an available bed at the Chatham-Kent Hospice. Scott acknowledged that driving Pam to the Hospice was the most difficult thing he ever had to do. “Even as I was driving her to the Hospice, I wondered if we were doing the right thing,” shared Scott, “but once we arrived, I knew it was the right move. All of us felt a calm we hadn’t felt in several months.”

What Your Donations Are Used For:


The chart below gives you an idea of the other expenses we must cover from fundraising revenue.

  • Compassionate Care

    Resident care is our top priority. Your donation will help cover the cost of things like personal care products, medical equipment and supplies.

  • Connected and Comfortable

    Your donation will help keep our residents and their families comfortable and connected by covering the cost of utilities such as natural gas, electricity, water, cable and telephone.

  • Home-like hospitality
    Making our residents and their families feel at home is a top priority. Your donation will help pay for groceries as well as kitchen equipment and supplies.
  • Education and Awareness
    Ongoing education and awareness will ensure the sustainability of our residential hospice. Your donation will support ongoing staff & volunteer education and training, community education and efficient donation management.
  • Business as usual
    Although we want our hospice to feel like home to our residents, we must operate as a business. Your donation will cover costs associated with running a business such as accounting, human resources, purchasing, office equipment and supplies and insurance.
  • Keeping House
    Like your home, we want to keep a safe and tidy home. Your donation will help us do that by covering costs for laundry & housekeeping, ongoing maintenance, safety and security.
