Please browse our Home Page, Events and Programs, and Resourse Guide, to find out about information as to what is happening in our community of Cochrane and the surrounding area, as we endeavour to provide information that can best support individuals and their loved ones in their end-of-life journey.


Comfort Kits!

In an effort to assist families experiencing an end of life journey, with a goal keeping those with illnesses in their homes as long as possible, we are pleased to annouce our new Cochrane and Area Hospice Society Comfort Kits. The kits are intended to add a combination of information resources and comfort items such as journals and comfort blankets/quilts (created and donated through many caring volunteer individuals). The kits also come with a request form of services that families can ask for that range from assistance in shovelling walks and driveways and picking up groceries to assistance from palliative trained volunteers who can provide friendly visitation and respite visits. The volunteers support has been coordinated with Cochrane Helping Hands, who have become a valued partner organization to the Cochrane and Area Hospice Society.

Kits are distributed on an as needed basis through Cochrane Home Care, who are acting as the distribution network in support of the Cochrane and Area Hospice Society. For information on Comfort Kits please contact us at info@cochranehospicesociety.ca.
