The Hospice Palliative Care Society of Cape Breton County is a vital community healthcare partner. Through donor support, we:
Ensure compassionate holistic care for palliative care patients and their loved ones.
Fund comfort and care services that provide for the unique personal needs of patients and families so patients can live well until the end of their lives.
Enhance care through education & professional development for staff and volunteers.
Our donors help patients live well.
Legacy projects are special gifts created by patients working with the Society's music therapist Jill Murphy. They tell Jill it offers a sense of accomplishment when they are able to compile memories and messages and tie them together with song or voice and visuals. It is a meaningful and positive project that provides focus for patients often bringing comfort and peace. They want their voices to live on. They want to know that they will not be forgotten. Maureen Carroll created this beautiful legacy project for her daughter and family members. It was a final gift that ensures her voice and their stories and songs will live on. The music therapy program would not be possible without community support.
Sharon Paul Rudderham shares her experience of caring for a loved one at home while receiving care and support from the Hospice Palliative Care Society. Our donors make it possible for the Society to fulfill a family's wish of caring for a loved one at home.
