As Dale Weil, Executive Director of the Teresa Dellar Palliative Care Residence said following the announcement of the results: “We are amazed by the ongoing support we receive from the community, year after year. There truly is no greater gift than assuring someone’s care as they are dying. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we can continue our mission : ensuring ourpatients are living their last days with dignity, surrounded by love, compassion, family and friends, because of the support we receive from the community.”
The Residence relies on community support and fundraising activities to raise more than 3,8 million dollars each year. The community plays a crucial role in contributing the financial resources that allow the Residence to provide its care and services to all our patients free of charge.
