Special days and holidays, like Valentine's Day, can often trigger memories and difficult emotions in individuals who have experienced the loss of a loved one. Check out this week's Changing Lives Podcast to learn more about coping with grief during Valentine's Day.
Hospice Quinte is hosting a series of Advance Care Planning seminars for adults 55 and older thanks to $24,000 in funding received from Ontario’s ‘Seniors Community Grant’ program. An Advance Care Plan (ACP) is a way for people to express what they wish to take place should they become incapable of consenting to or refusing treatment, or personal care. This includes deciding who will make decisions on one’s behalf should that happen.
Hospice Quinte is delighted to have received $225,000 from the City of Belleville today. This latest contribution is part of the municipality’s $1M commitment that helped Hospice Quinte establish its six-bed, world-class hospice residence known as the Stan Klemencic Care Centre. To date, the City of Belleville has paid $775,000 toward the 6-year pledge.
This event is a trade show where local healthcare organizations, businesses, social service providers and other caregiver-related entities will gather to showcase their products and services. The public will learn about diverse programs available to assist them and their families with respect to “Caregiving” for people of all ages, all walks of life and under a variety of circumstances.
