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

LOCAL HOSPICE BREATHES LIFE &

MEANING INTO BRANDING

Our leading local hospice society has successfully breathed life and meaning into its branding in a bid to modernise its approach to end of life care and management of grief. The goal is to boost awareness of the caring and compassionate range of free family-centric services offered by hospice. The passionate group of volunteers at The Greater Trail Hospice Society, which operates from the Kiro Wellness Centre on Columbia Avenue in Trail, have officially unveiled the society's new logo which features a heart at its core being supported in forward motions and has been designed to represent accountability. It has been launched on a new website alongside a revamped mission and core values. Emerging from a strategy initiated by funding received from Columbia Basin Trust, it’s hoped the logo and website will extend the organisation’s cross generational reach and increase engagement within the heart of the community served, from medical professionals and volunteers to patients and their families.
