COVID-19 has shifted the way many live their day-to-day lives, especially those who require hospice care.
At Rosedale Hospice, our patients are extremely vulnerable to infection, and they want to spend their final days, weeks, and months with those that they love the most by their side. It is our job to protect each visitor, patient, and staff who enter the doors of Rosedale Hospice. These days, that is an extremely challenging job
The costs at Rosedale Hospice have significantly increased as a result of the new and necessary precautions to ensure the safety of everyone that walks through our doors.
In March, as things changed rapidly in response to COVID-19, the Calgary Foundation stepped in to respond to the changing community need. They quickly established the Calgary Foundation’s Pandemic Recovery Fund and set up live webinars to guide charities through the process to apply. This foundation truly understands that the charitable sector is under immense pressure and have proven that they are here to help us through it. We are extremely grateful that Rosedale Hospice was awarded $30,000 through this granting program.
?Through the Pandemic Recovery Program, the Calgary Foundation is honoured to support organizations like Hospice Calgary? hearing the stories of the thoughtful care they bring to their work is what makes OUR work truly meaningful. As our valued partner, the Foundation looks forward to future opportunities to support Hospice Calgary to achieve our shared vision of building a compassionate, respectful and inclusive community.?
