Hospice Happenings January 2023
Happy New Year!! The Olds & District Hospice Society is starting off 2023 with some exciting new initiatives. As of January 3 the Society has been overseeing the operations of one of Olds favorite community treasures Nu2u. We would like to extend our gratitude to the current Supervisor, Gayle, The Town of Olds, the community as a whole for the outpouring of support and especially the Nu2u volunteers for their commitment, knowledge, heart and dedication to this meaningful organization.
The Society will also be moving January 28, 2023 to the Olds United Church, 4810 50 St, so that our services can be more accessible. We are looking forward to our new shared space and would like to thank Kelly Grittner and The Board of Trustees of the Olds United Church for their work on this intuitive collaborative initiative. The Society is looking for an affordable reception desk for the new space as we will be losing our built in structure. If you can help in this matter please call the office at 403-586-9993. Once we are settled in our new space we invite you to come in and meet our team and learn more about our organization, operations and services we offer.
Speaking about the team: Did you know that the Olds and District Hospice Society has 3 staff members and 85 volunteers that sit on our Board & Committees, help with events and support our clients through hospice, bereavement, and navCARE support. Outside of O&DHS we have an extended team of Health Care Professionals through Alberta Health Services as well as Seasons Encore and we appreciate each and everyone of you for your role in providing palliative, bereavement and navCare support to those in need.
