Annual Giving Campaign
At McNally House Hospice, we feel privileged to provide compassionate, person-centred care to not only our residents, but their family and friends. For every one resident we care for at the hospice, there are at least five family and friends that will require our support.
But we can’t do it without you.
In addition to provincial funding to cover nursing costs, more than $1M is needed annually to ensure the hospice residence and all other community programs remain available.
Finding Compassion in the Moment
Life is made up of a collection of moments and at end of life these moments become more precious, poignant, and meaningful. Over the last 15 years, the staff and volunteers at McNally House Hospice have had the privilege and honour to witness and be a part of thousands of moments. Moments of joy, of loss, of love; simple moments that will never be forgotten. Each of these become a part of the story of those we care for, and each of these moments is filled with compassion.
