At Canuck Place, we don’t remember days, we remember moments.
This past year has been the most challenging environment we have ever faced and the phrase ‘thank you’ does not seem big enough to express the deep appreciation to our community for their support during COVID-19. We heard the heartfelt car horns outside our hospices, saw the hand-written signs and cards, and we gratefully received the gifts of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and critical funds.
Because of you, care continued for children and families.
Year at a Glance
Virtual care has been foundational for many years at Canuck Place as it assists us in being able to deliver care for families at home, and no matter where they live in our cast province. Our team members further leveraged that expertise and integrated virtual care across all aspects of our program: recreation and music therapy, online school, counselling and bereavement support and, clinical care.
Together, we care for the whole family
The mission at Canuck Place is to ensure that children and families on our program receive holistic care that celebrates their values, and their lives- whether those lives are measured in hours, days, weeks or years.
We are partners, with you, in making the most of the time that is left for a child. Together, we empower children and families to make important choices:
- A choice for care-focused on comfort, the relief of suffering and symptoms, and quality of life.
- A choice for the place of end-of-life.
- A choice for emotional, social and bereavement support.
Your support will bring more in-home care, more virtual health supports, and expanded provincial care- so no one walks this journey alone.
When families come to us, the end of the story is already know, but the journey to get there has yet to be written. With your support, Canuck Place works to make the rest of that story the best it can be.
Together, we can ensure that families create lasting memories filled with joy, so no moment is missed.
