At Hospice Northwest, we strive to help our clients make every moment matter by offering comfort, support and a sense of connection to families and clients who are dealing with a life limiting illness or struggling with grief. Our palliative care volunteers are dedicated to helping our clients achieve the best possible quality of life right up until the end of life.
Our Hospice Comfort Kits were designed to provide comfort and information to the client and their family members. Each kit contains approximately $50 worth of items, including: helpful information booklets, a cozy blanket, activity items such as puzzle books or colouring books, a journal and pen, candy and tissues.
The Hospice Comfort Care Kits are given out free of charge to anyone who would benefit from them in the city of Thunder Bay. Each year, Hospice Northwest supports approximately 350 clients. At $50 per kit, that is a cost of a minimum of $17,500 per year. Funds raised through True North Strong Communities and the True North Adventure Game will help us offset those costs and allow us to help make every moment matter for these individuals and their families during one of the most difficult times in their lives.
