At Phone Experts we believe in being involved in the community and giving back, this week we are highlighting the Red Deer Hospice, an organization we as a company and individually spend our time at.
Red Deer Hospice Society is a residential end-of-life care facility dedicated to caring for the terminally ill and improving the quality of life in a community-based, home-like setting. Their nurses, support staff and volunteers provide care for residents and support for families. Their focus is on comfort care provided by a capable palliative nursing team. Red Deer Hospice staff work in partnership with the community and all support organizations to provide the best individualized and personal care possible.Their facility is designed to feel like home with a variety of quiet places for residents, families and visitors to reflect, talk, read and connect. Common areas include comfortable living and sitting rooms, reading areas, a dining room and kitchen as well as a sunny multi-purpose sanctuary.
Currently the Red Deer Hospice is in the process of an expansion, adding a 15,000 sq foot addition in the form of three floors on the existing property. In addition to six new resident rooms they will have multi purpose rooms – to provide community programming in the form of respite day programs for palliative clients and their families and education to professionals, public and families who are involved with palliative needs.
There are many different ways that The Red Deer Hospice looks for community support. You can contribute in one of the following ways:
