The Castlegar Hospice Society will kick off National Hospice Palliative Care Week with a fundraising walk on Sunday.
Hike for Hospice will take place at Kinsmen Park at 11 a.m. Registration starts a half hour prior to the event and the Lions Club will serve hot dogs to hike participants. If you are interested in participating or donating, go to castlegarhospice.org.
Hospice will show two documentaries during the week at the Castlegar Health Centre’s education room. Both shows start at 4 p.m. and guests are asked to register by calling 250-304-1244.
On Tuesday, May 7, the movie will be End Game. The feature looks at terminally ill patients who meet extraordinary medical practitioners seeking to change our approach to life or death.
On Wednesday, May 8, the movie will be Extremis. This film witnesses the heavy emotions that come with end-of-life decisions as doctors, patients and families in a hospital intensive care unit face harrowing decisions.
On Thursday, May 9, Hospice will host an open house and advanced care planning help session at the Castlegar Hospice office between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m.
