Bethell Hospice has many stories to tell. In fact, you may have one of your own. These stories touch upon friendship, pain, loss, kindness and even humorous anecdotes. Each one is tied together by a common thread, is inspired by love, and revolves around the end-of-life journey. It is the impact of these stories that reinforces the continued need of a local residential hospice along with accessible community grief and bereavement support programs.
This need can only be filled with your help. Will you join us in continuing our story?
Those who walk the hospice hallways and interact with doctors, nurses, support staff and volunteers understand this need. They embark on the journey with their loved one, making the end-of-life process one of peace, serenity and compassion.
When a recent resident spent his last days at Bethell Hospice, his sister shared the impact of the experience on her family, “I never quite understood, until my first visit, what a precious resource a hospice is for the dying. We were so grateful for the care provided so compassionately and so generously without exception. Bethell Hospice is simply an awesome place.”
Not all who have suffered a loss spend time at the Bethell Hospice residence. Many are community clients who understand it is essential to deal with their pain and sorrow as they honour the memory of a loved one.
In the words of a grieving daughter, “Bethell Hospice gave me a safe space that I needed to go through my grief journey. They also supported me through my good days and my not so good days; I cannot thank them enough.”
Bethell Hospice is a place where lives pass, stories are cherished, and legacies carry on forever. Your gift will make a difference to all those who need our help. Donate today and remember your loved one as part of the Light & Love Celebration. Each donation is received with so much gratitude.
