Chatham-Kent Hospice officials spent the summer asking citizens to donate a day of hospice care for a resident and their family.
Residents responded. To date, the hospice has reached 83 per cent of its $110,000 goal – one month of Hospice care.
On Sept. 23 at 7 p.m. the hospice will host its second Hearts Together for CK Hospice live stream. It will feature some light-hearted, fun games and recognize the difference local support has made to hospice families; families like the Vavoulises.
“The worst moment for me was having him leave the house that he built with my mom, that we grew up in and all the memories that are here. But when we drove up (to the hospice), a little bit of that pain subsided seeing the staff waiting for us. Everyone understood what we were going through,” shared Fannie Vavoulis.
One day of care for one family costs $362. By donating a day of care you can help residents and their families make the most of every day by supporting the care they need during a very difficult time.
This care not only includes pain and symptom management for the resident, but emotional and spiritual support for the resident and their loved ones.
Donations can be made at www.heartstogetherck.com, over the phone at 519-354-3113 ext. 2403 or by mailing/dropping off a cheque to the Chatham-Kent Hospice Foundation 34 Wellington St E., Chatham ON N7M 3N7.
