HOSPICE HEART STORIES
I felt the pressure of caregivnig fall away
While in the hospital, the staff talked to him about what he would like to do moving forward and introduced him to the idea of hospice care. He knew he didn’t want to die at home for his wife’s, Gail, sake. Although they had some experience with a hospice in the past, they were very happy with what they experienced at Chatham-Kent Hospice. “I felt the pressure of caregiving fall away as soon as we arrived,” said Gail.
What Your Donations Are Used For:
The chart below gives you an idea of the other expenses we must cover from fundraising revenue.
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.
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.
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.
