Hospice Peterborough has recently opened a brand new facility and is expanding programming to include a Hospice Residence offering 24/7 end of life care. Completing this project has been the focus for the past 6 years but now the organization is anticipating the development of a new strategic plan with new leadership.
Are you interested in supporting hospice palliative care in our community and helping Hospice Peterborough prosper through this transitional period? Please consider applying for a position on the Hospice Peterborough Board of Directors, or a position on one of the Standing Committees of the Board. For more details please click the link below.
Thanks to Craig Mortlock (Mortlock Construction) and Matt Philip (Lett Architects) for the following photos. Power was officially brought to the building by Peterborough Utilities last Sunday. The interior photos were taken last Thursday and Sunday.
Hi everyone, Todd here. It was a chilly walk around the site today but I was able to get some good photos of construction progress. Linda was also inside the building this morning and took those photos. We are getting closer!!! [showhide type=”post”]
At this time of year, enjoying the holidays can feel difficult if you are grieving. You may even feel guilty for being joyful (even if it is fleeting) because joy and grief are often treated as opposite emotions that should not meet. After someone has died, it is important to be able to acknowledge pain and sadness during special occasions – to be able to integrate honouring the person into a time you may have typically enjoyed and looked forward to.
Each year Hospice supports clients and community members to honour the death of someone they are connected, to by lighting a tree and inviting people to remember by writing a message or the name of the person who died on a paper dove and attaching it to the tree. The template for the dove is available here and you are welcome to print a dove and drop it by Hospice or to print doves for use in your own home over the holidays.
Here are some resources recommended by Hospice staff that you may find helpful at this time:
