Halloween Treats at Northside General

On Monday, October 26,  Northside Volunteers treated palliative care patients to a Halloween treat, but no tricks!

Although the patients are going through a very difficult time in their life’s journey, we try to bring some normality to what is at its best a very difficult time for most of them. Thanks to the wonderful volunteers we were able to treat quite a few patients who share 4 West ( Northside General Hospital)  with our palliative care patients. We had three kinds of tea buns; raisin, cheddar and plain. Lots of cheese , jams and cookies. And of course, tea and other refreshments – all made by our volunteers. It’s such a joy to see the smiles on the patients’ faces. We give them a small  Halloween pumpkin as well.

I think there is a little child in all of us who remembers Halloweens past. Along with a few hugs and laughs we made a difference, for now.  From all the gang on the Northside Hospice team, It was our pleasure.
