Having moved to Trail in 2004 with my husband, 2 littles and another on the way, I was struck by the sense of community this city offers. Being able to raise our kids in a beautiful, caring environment has been an amazing experience. As the kids got older I knew it was my time to find a way to give back to the community and I have through Trail Hospice. I receive such satisfaction in matching clients to a Friendly Visitor volunteer, knowing this makes their week a little brighter, and finding bedside volunteers for the acute clients knowing they have somebody there to hold their hand and talk to them. Knowing we provide peace and comfort makes this job a joy. Jen Savage Office Assistant Greater Trail Hospice Society 250-364-6204

I was lucky enough to be born and raised in Trail. I worked 15 of those years at Teck. I was laid off in July 1993 and started the nursing program at Selkirk College, September that same year. I completed my undergraduate degree in 1998 and worked in Trail. By 2002 I moved to Calgary for work and spent the next 10 years working as a Nurse, achieving my Masters of Nursing, teaching Nurses, and working as a Clinical Nurse Practioner. I retired in 2012 and moved to Kelowna. My passion for nursing permeated through my body and I realized I was not yet finished with Nursing. So, I worked as a home care nurse for the next six years in the areas of Palliative/End of Life care and as a member of the Emergency Response Team for the Palliative Care Program. I retired in 2017 and moved back to Calgary in 2018. In March of 2020, I was asked to renew my nursing license and help with the COVID pandemic. This provided me an opportunity to act upon my other passion for counselling. In May I started a post-graduate program to become licensed as a Family and Couples Therapist. The isolation and loneliness of COVID opened space for me to reflect on my reasons for living in Calgary and how much I missed my daughter. By October 2, I was back in Trail and starting my new position at GTHS. I am so happy to be seeing old friends and reconnecting with community. It feels so great to be back. I have unfortunately, experienced many losses in my life. I believe wearing the two hats of counselor and nurse provides me an opportunity to serve my Trail in a supportive way. I feel privileged to be working at the Greater Trail Hospice Society and with this amazing Team. We are small but we are mighty... Grief and Loss Program Director info@trailhospice.org
