GRIEF IS REAL. GRIEF IS A NORMAL RESPONSE TO LOSS. The COVID-19 Pandemic has intensified the normal losses of life. Throughout life we can all expect to lose loved ones due to death and we mourn those losses. However, we currently can’t share our sorrow by attending funeral or memorial services, or by hugging others who are hurting. Some people may also be struggling with loss of a job or business, loss of a feeling of security, loss of connections with friends and family, loss of your own health. A loss is a loss, regardless of what has caused it. The Greater Trail Hospice Society can support you as you grieve what you have lost. We have trained volunteers to listen to your story, help you understand what symptoms are normal during grief, and provide support so you can sift through your memories and pain, and move forward in life. Call 250-231-7344 to arrange an appointment.

DONATE A CAR

TO SUPPORT HOSPICE PROGRAMS

Do you have a car or truck sitting around that you don’t drive or don’t need any more? Have you been wondering what you could do with it? If you donate it to the Greater Trail Hospice Society through Donate a Car Canada they will pick up your vehicle for free, sell it or junk it for scrap, and you will be sent a tax receipt for the value of it. Hospice will then receive the proceeds of the sale to support our on-going work with people who have a life-limiting illness or who are grieving. This is another great way you can support our community! Check out their website: Donate a Car Canada

WE ARE STILL HERE FOR YOU DURING COVID-19

PRESS RELEASE: Volunteers, vital to the

future of hospice care and part of the

essential care team – Pandemic or not

Oct 1, 2020 | Front Page, News, Press Release Vancouver, BC, October 1, 2020 at 11:00 am Hospice palliative care volunteers play an important role in supporting the programs offered by hospice societies across British Columbia. These dedicated volunteers can be found at hospitals, inpatient units, client’s homes and residential care facilities, and in grief support groups in our communities. Like paid staff, hospice volunteers are equally important in the continuum of care and have played a lead hand in the success of hospices since the beginning of time. The BCHPCA has put out a statement highlighting the needs of hospice societies during the pandemic to ensure that hospice volunteers can continue the work they are skilled and trained to do with inclusive protocols and accessibility.
