This holiday season, help us light up Rotary Hospice with love.
The holidays are traditionally a time of joy and celebration with family and friends; for those missing a loved one, it can be an especially nostalgic time. Again this year, we invite you to consider a gift to our 5th annual Lights of Love Holiday Campaign in memory or honour of someone special.
This year, we invite you to join us on Tuesday, December 5th at 7pm as we gather in person under the Pavilion on the Greenwood Court property next to the entrance of Rotary Hospice. Join us for music, hot chocolate, readings and a time to remember and reflect as we light up Rotary Hospice with love and light.
Please note: this is an outdoor event so please dress for the weather, and park on Greenwood Drive or Norwood Court.
"As my mom took her final breaths, there were two words that I told my mom: she was safe and she was loved. It felt like those words came out so naturally, it's not what I thought I would say. But I truthfully think I said those words because safety and love is what hospice care is." - Brittany Petrie, daughter of Debra Sterkenburg who spent eight weeks at Rotary Hospice in the fall of 2022.
When dedicating a Light of Love, please include the name of the person you are recognizing along with any message you wish to share. We will include this on the Lights of Love recognition page on this site, and in our hospice home.
The list will be updated regularly until December 31, 2023.
Donations of $20 or more will be issued a tax receipt; donations of $2,500 or more will be added to the annual giving wall in the hospice.
Your gift this holiday season will wrap Rotary Hospice not only in lights but also in love! Thank you.
Because You Cared
We are all touched by death and grief at some point in our lives. Rotary Hospice Stratford Perth is here to help during these difficult times.
Opened to the public on June 22, 2019, Rotary Hospice is surrounded by the calming presence of nature, located on land behind Greenwood Court in Stratford. Since opening its doors, 325 individuals have been cared for on their end-of-life journey. This number does not include their loved ones who are also supported by our care team and trained volunteers.
Imagine a compassionate place where all who enter are warmly welcomed and cared for – at no cost. A comfortable place where pain is kept at bay to make space and time for whatever brings you joy. Hospice palliative care is the better ending we all deserve.
Thank you for your gift of comfort and care.
