Hospice Society seeks to increase its visibility

Our aim is to ensure all palliative patients and their families who need help from Hospice volunteers are able to do so

Editor, The Times:

Clearwater and District Hospice Society held its annual general meeting on May 13. The following members were elected to the board: Shirley Barnard, president; Maureen Allen, vice president; Eva Gebert, treasurer; Joan Mumford, secretary; and directors: Anita Bazely, Ena Chiasson, Correen Hiebert, Fay McCracken, Niki McMillan, Irene Roach and Elizabeth Schulte.

It was decided that the society will increase its visibility in the community and have a more active presence in the hospital. It is our aim to ensure all palliative patients and their families who need help from Hospice volunteers are able to do so and that referrals are made in a timely manner.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who came to our “Spirit of Spring” tea in April. Your support is greatly appreciated and allows us to continue to serve those who need us. We invite all of you to join us again next year.

We expect this next year to be both busy and interesting. Later this month we are holding our training session for new volunteers and any members of the public who wish to attend. So far we have 12 people.

You are invited to join our meetings, which we hold every third Monday, September to June at 10 a.m. in our office in the Legion building.

Shirley Barnard, president
