The Abbotsford branch of the Royal Canadian Legion has presented a $7,500 cheque to the Abbotsford Hospice Society for its capital campaign.
The society will build Holmberg House – a resource centre and adult hospice – on the Campus of Care site adjacent to Abbotsford Regional Hospital.
Also included on the site will be Canuck Place Children’s Hospice and Matthew’s House, a respite facility for children with severe disabilities. The two-storey adult hospice will consist of a home-like building which will offer medical care to accommodate the person who is ill, as well as family and friends. There will be 10 private patient suites, each opening onto a private balcony overlooking gardens and a patio.
