Who is Hospice Huntsville?
Hospice Huntsville provides quality end of life care for members of our community who are dying with a terminal illness. Hospice Huntsville has offered many robust programs provided palliative care support to our community for 27 years. Our visiting volunteer program provides bedside support in our clients homes or at hospital to allow family and caregiver respite, our grief and bereavement program supports family members/caregivers after their loved one has died. Algonquin Grace is our five bed residential hospice that provides 24 hour professional nursing and personal support work to alleviate the burdens of caring for a dying family member at home. Although well recognized to provide the right care in the most appropriate setting of resident’s choice and in an extremely cost effective manner, hospice care is only partially funded by the government.
Why do we have the 500 Club?
Hospice Huntsville is responsible to raise 50% of our annual operating budget in order to offer our much needed programs free of charge to our clients, residents and families. This amounts to over $534,000 annually that is raised through our community members and businesses. Government funding by the LHIN (Local Health Integration Network) is provided annually and partially covers the cost of wages for the nursing and personal support work at the residential hospice. Although this funding is secure, it obviously does not allow the operations of the residential hospice building including heat, hydro, food, laundry and basic office products for charting to continue without the efforts of our fundraising team.
