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 $900,000 is needed annually to ensure the hospice residence and all other community programs remain available.
Where Compassion Grows
We believe in growing with the needs of our community. This belief led us to the Life in Every Moment Capital Campaign. The new Day Hospice will provide the much-needed services and programs for patients and families to fill the gap that begins at the time of being diagnosed with a life-limiting illness. The Hospice Residence will include 4 new beds, bringing the total to 10. Supporting people to live well until their last breath is a measure of our humanity. Helping families stay well and cope through bereavement is the mark of a compassionate community.
