Campaign Launch

News Release:

“When asked most people will say when it’s their time they would prefer to die at home. But reality is almost 60% of Canadian deaths happen in hospital.

Pilgrims Hospice Society has determined that the time is now to give Edmontonians specialized end-of-life care in a setting with all the comforts of home.

The organization has launched a $15 million Home for Hospice campaign to build Edmonton’s first stand-alone residential community hospice. The Roozen Family Hospice Centre will offer specialized end-of-life care and grief support in a beautiful, relaxed and family-friendly community hospice…

The Home for Hospice campaign launched publicly after a media event held at the Crestwood Community League on February 26, 2019.
