May 1 event brings Valley hospice closer to reality
Posted on May 31, 2016
It was Careforce’s distinct pleasure to join more than 100 Valley residents on May 1 for the 5th annual Hike for Hospice. This fundraising event, led by the Valley Hospice Foundation, raises money to help build a hospice right here in the Annapolis Valley. For those who may be unfamiliar, hospice care is a type of care and a philosophy of care that focuses on the reduction or management of pain and symptoms for patients who are chronically ill or terminally ill.
It was a bright, warm sunny day on May 1st, and the Careforce team was out in full force. As an official sponsor for the event, Careforce set up a refreshment tent with water, Gatorade, and other goodies. We look forward to being involved in this event again next year, and we look even more forward to the day the hospice opens its doors here in the Valley.
