The Hospice Palliative Care Society of Cape Breton County and Nova Scotia Health Authority’s Palliative Care Service have worked together for over 35 years to provide an integrated Circle of Caring approach to hospice palliative care across our communities.


Patients receiving referrals to the Hospice Palliative Care Service annually.


Patients receiving support from hospice palliative care programs and services at any given time.


Annual Society expenditures on funding support provided to individuals and families needed to ease the end-of-life journey as well as Hospice/An Cala upkeep and improvements.


Volunteers provide the much needed emotional, social, and/or practical support to patients, their caregivers, and families.

How You Can Help

It is with the generous commitment of community that the Society, working in collaboration with the dedicated Palliative Care Service, hospice staff and volunteers, can meet the unique and immediate needs of patients, their caregivers, and families at a time when comfort, compassion and care is needed most.

We may not be able to add days to life, but we can add life to days.
