What Your Dollar Does
Because you give, we are able to do many things!
Your donations and generosity demonstrate that ours is a compassionate community. It allows those with a life-limiting illness to be treated as they would want to be treated and provides access to the programs that bring smiles, relief, and security to patients and their families in their time of need.
Your donations can mean that a palliative care patient’s caregiver has a night’s rest with the presence of a nurse for short-term relief.
Your donations can see that a palliative care patient receives a much-needed piece of medical equipment that allows them to stay at home.
Your donations can provide taxi fare for a caregiver or family member of a palliative care patient who would not otherwise get to the hospital to see them.
Your donations can provide food, oil, drugstore items for a palliative care patient that simply does not have the financial means for the basics of life.
Your donations can provide the much needed helping hands to assist a palliative care patient with dog walking, shopping, plowing driveways, mowing lawns, etc.
Your donations can bring music therapy to a palliative care patient who wants to sing, listen, or leave a legacy for their family and friends.
Your donations can provide the much-needed relaxation care services for a palliative care patient such as pet therapy, reiki, yoga, art therapy, massage, etc.
Your donations can enable a special celebration for a palliative care patient such as a wedding, a graduation or a birthday that creates joy and lasting memories.
Your donations can mean that supplies are available in the family kitchen in the An Cala Palliative Care Unit or in Hospice Cape Breton for volunteers to create homemade baked treats and nourishing soups.
Your donations can help bring joy and warmth to a palliative care patient with the bright floral arrangements created every Thursday morning by a small group of the Society’s dedicated volunteers. Customizing the arrangements to mark special holidays and seasons of the year and delivering the bright floral arrangements with a smile is always a bonus.
Your donations can fund on-going education for palliative care staff, and our volunteers, ensuring the highest level of quality of palliative care is provided to palliative care patients, their caregivers, and families in their time of need.
Your donations can give a caregiver, family members and friends of a palliative care patient access to the support needed to assist them through their grieving and bereavement process.
