Peterborough – Thank you to the Peterborough Professional Fire Fighters Association (PPFFA) for making a HUGE difference to the comfort of our residents! With the generosity of a $5000 donation from PPFFA members, we were able to purchase two specialized mattresses that provide optimal comfort for our residents at end-of-life.
“We are very fortunate to have such a great organization in our community as Hospice Peterborough. PPFFA would like to congratulate them on their beautiful new facility. The fire service has a 50% cancer rate and we recognize the importance of palliative care. If we can help provide comfort to those residents who are struggling, it is our honor.” Said Jim Woodley, PPFFA Vice President.
This impactful donation by the PPFA has already and will continue to improve the quality of life for people throughout our community who spend their final days in our care.
“We sincerely thank the members of the Peterborough Professional Firefighters Association for recognizing Hospice Peterborough as an organization worthy of your trust and your philanthropic spirit.” Says Linda Sunderland, Executive Director.
The new Hospice Peterborough located at 325 London Street, is a reflection of a 30 year history of our ongoing commitment to hospice palliative care. Hospice is a community of the living, seriously ill, those who are dying and those who are grieving. True to our vision it is a safe place where good and lasting memories are formed for our clients and their families at every stage of their journey.
The new Hospice Peterborough stands a beacon to support the needs of our community for future generations.
