Colchester East Hants Hospice prepares to mark National Hospice Palliative Care Week
National Hospice Palliative Care Week runs from May 4 to 10 under the theme, “Busting the Myths about Hospice Palliative Care.” The Colchester East Hants Hospice (CEHH) will mark the week with a variety of activities, including a major performance by J.P Cormier and Symphony Nova Scotia. A “Hootenanny for Hospice” will take place May 10 at 7:30 p.m.
The Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association aims to bust the myths about hospice palliative care in 2014. A popular myth is that receiving hospice palliative care means you’ll die soon. In fact, hospice palliative care is not just for the final days or months of life. It’s a holistic approach that includes pain and symptom management, caregiver support, spiritual care, bereavement and much more. The Colchester East Hants Hospice encourages everyone to visit www.chpca.net to learn more about Busting the Myths about Hospice Palliative Care.
Hospice Palliative Care week will be capped off in Colchester East-Hants with a major performance. Hootenanny for Hospice features Cormier and Symphony Nova Scotia and will take place at the Cobequid Educational Centre, 34 Lorne Street, in Truro. Hootenanny for Hospice will mark the first time Symphony Nova Scotia has performed in Truro in 15 years.
Cormier will be performing his new hit song, Hometown Battlefield. Join him as he weaves his mastery with the best backup band in town!
