Pal­lia­tive home serves pro­fi­table break­fast

L'Etoile - - IN OTHER WORDS -

Pro­ving it can think out­side of the box in an ef­fort to raise much nee­ded funds, or­ga­ni­zers at the Vau­dreuil-Sou­langes Pal­lia­tive Care Re­si­dence in Hud­son re­cent­ly ac­cep­ted a ge­ne­rous donation in ex­change for pro­vi­ding break­fast and a mee­ting room for ad­vi­sors from the West Is­land In­ves­tors Group. The fi­nan­cial team ki­cked off their an­nual mee­ting at the home by pre­sen­ting the VSPCR with a cheque for $5,550. Ray­mond Mas­sa, Re­gio­nal Di­rec­tor for In­ves­tors Group said the donation was made pos­sible thanks to the ge­ne­ro­si­ty of their ad­vi­sors and di­rec­tors.

The VSPCR has of­fe­red spe­cia­li­zed pal­lia­tive care free of charge to kids, teens and adults in a ter­mi­nal-phase of ill­ness since Sep­tem­ber, 2010. The home re­lies hea­vi­ly on pu­blic do­na­tions to of­fer its end-of-life care with di­gni­ty and res­pect.
