Our Cause

THIS IS THE HOUSE THAT LOVE BUILT.

This is a big year for Hospice Halifax. Ground breaking in fact. A new 10-bed hospice residence will open in Halifax in early 2019 – a feat that would not be possible without the generosity of Feeling the Love supporters.

Fostering patient and family comfort will make up the heart of compassionate care at Hospice Halifax. From around-the-clock professional nursing care, to warm, inviting spaces, good food, licensed counselling and social work support, and on site family accommodations, Hospice Halifax will offer all its services without associated fees. The hospice residence will be an inclusive space where patients and their families receive personalized, dignified end-of-life care.

Every year, we will welcome about 150 patients who have a terminal illness and are nearing the end of their lives. About 1,800 community members – patients’ extended family, friends and colleagues – will also have access to support at hospice.

HOSPICE HALIFAX

Hospice Halifax is a compassionate and supportive community of staff members, volunteers, and donors dedicated to helping patients and families experience the best end of life possible. To learn more, please visit www.hospicehalifax.ca

The Event

FEELING THE LOVE 2019.

Dinner and dance. Silent auction. And loads of fun!

Next, head into the grand ballroom with your guests and take a seat at your reserved table for a gourmet meal. Our spectacular sweet and savoury dessert buffet closes the meal and kicks off the night as we welcome nearly 400 additional guests for the post-dinner party and dance.
