In honour of National Hospice Palliative Care Week (May 1-7), the Cape Breton Post is recognizing members of our local palliative care team in Getting to Know features throughout the month of May.

Getting to Know: Alan McDonald

Alan McDonald is a retired teacher, guidance counsellor and principal, and is currently the bereavement co-ordinator for Hospice Palliative Care Society of Cape Breton.

He’s been involved with the group for 10 years and says it’s important because it is designed to support families and friends who lose a loved one while in palliative care service. He adds the feedback has been very positive and he gives much of the credit to the volunteers who devote their time and energy to palliative care.
