We are all going to die, and most of us want to die at home, or in a home-like environment, with respect and dignity, loved ones around us. But, at present, in our local area, this is rarely possible. We quickly see that the only option is hospital care, in an already overwhelmed medical system, as we wait for a long term care bed, probably in a distant community.

John & I share The Hospice Hub’s goal to address these issues by raising awareness, creating a network of care & support volunteers, helping neighbours navigate the care and social network, and being a support through all phases of the dying process. Eventually, the goal is to establish a four bed Hospice Care Centre serving the wider the local community. 

We want hospice care when we need it, and our generous sponsors feel the same. Join us to Hike for Hospice on behalf of all of us who want to die at home, and those who want to care for their loved one as they die at home.

The goal of our first Hike for Hospice is to raise much needed funds and awareness for hospice palliative care in Perth, Smiths Falls, Portland, Westport and surrounding areas.

 

the hospice hub will ensure that our people receive the home support, grief and bereavement, advanced care planning or spiritual care that they need.

 

All the funds raised will stay in our community.
