Dr. Balfour Mount, the patron of Valley Hospice Foundation, explains that high-quality palliative care “enables a shift from preoccupation with suffering and anguish, to a growing acceptance of integrity, wholeness and inner peace.” These words hang on a plaque in the entrance of the hospice.

“True love is inexhaustible; the more you give, the more you have.” – Antoine de Saint-Exupery
This quote perfectly describes the kind of love shared by Patricia and Charles McOnie. They met on a blind date at a drama festival at the Rebecca Cohn Auditorium in Halifax. A mutual friend introduced them, and it was love at first sight. As Charlie recollects,” Our eyes met and there was a long sustained flash of love, understanding and relief…we had found each other…soulmates long separated, now reunited at last”.

The Valley Hospice Foundation began in response to a community need to offer Valley residents – who for any reason are unable to die at home – and their loved ones a welcoming, quiet and comfortable alternative to hospital-based palliative care.
Hospice is a philosophy of care that not only eases patient’s pain and symptoms but attends to their emotional and spiritual needs as well as those of their loved ones.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
The Valley Hospice Foundation relies on the generosity and kindness of individuals and organizations to raise funds for the Valley Hospice. In addition to the money raised third party events can raise the profile of the hospice and create new friends for the work of the Hospice.
What is the Circle of Care?
It is comprised of donors to the Valley Hospice Foundation who have made a commitment to a monthly donation of any size.
If you are interested in volunteering to help with our fundraising events or assist us in other ways we would love to hear from you.
