The Hoe-Down for Hospice is coming up September 17th! This is going to be a great event support a great cause, Hospice. Specifically the Ridge Meadows Hospice Society. The Society is a volunteer driven local organization in the Maple Ridge / Pitt Meadows area (AKA Ridge Meadows) provide FREE Palliative and Bereavement support.
What that means is… We all go through the end of life experience, either our own or being there while a loved one does. The Ridge Hospice Society’s wonderful volunteers provide the emotional and human support so disparately needed at that time.
Some patients feel hospice is the equivalent to giving up on life. Family members may fell that placing a loved one in a hospice facility is tantamount to waiting callously for him or her to die. However, hospice is not simply a passive resignation to the inevitable. Rather, it can help the patient to enjoy a dignified, meaningful life in the company of loved ones for as long as possible, while controlling pain. It can also give the patient’s family a chance to comfort and support their loved one for as long as needed.
This will be the 3rd Hoe-Down for Hospice the Ridge Meadows Hospice Society has put on. It is a celebration of Life to raise support and awareness for programs which help those with so little life left to continue their celebration.
This year event! September 17th 6pm, that’s a Saturday night at the Maple Ridge Seniors Centre. Lots of entertainment, prizes, auction stuff, and best of all BBQ dinner, Yum!
