Annual Giving Campaign
On March 17, 2020, a global pandemic was declared and life as we knew it changed in the blink of an eye. Businesses and schools closed and we all self-isolated from our friends and family. At McNally House Hospice, we responded and safely navigated and adapted to the “new normal”. We continued to care for our residents. Our nursing staff continued to come to work, our doors stayed open. This year has been difficult, but we have continued to provide residents and their loved ones with the care and compassion they need to live their lives to the fullest. Compassionate communities always find a way.
But we can’t do it without you.
Compassionate Communities Always Find a Way.
But We Can’t do it Without You.
To continue to provide Niagara West the gold standard in end-of-life care, McNally House Hospice relies on the generosity of our community to help us raise more than $800,000 each year to cover our operating expenses. This holiday season, please consider McNally House Hospice in your gift giving.
Where Compassion Meets Community
McNally House Hospice exists to provide caring, supportive and compassionate hospice palliative care services to residents and their families in Niagara West.
More than $800,000 of our annual operating costs requires fundraising each year.
1,020 residents served since 2008.
This year volunteers contributed over 14,000 hours each year; a savings of over $205,000.
This year, our bereavement program pivoted to provide support virtually, so that no one in our community was left to grieve alone. 5 different support groups were offered and 279 hours of individual counselling.
Our psycho-spiritual program was expanded to support loved one’s who were unable to visit due to social distancing restrictions. A virtual caregiver support group was started to alleviate caregiver isolation. Over 650 hours of psycho-spiritual counselling sessions were held with individuals and families.
