Stratford Perth Rotary Hospice exists to provide a needed alternative to institutional care facilities and home care; a place where palliative care individuals, as well as their loved ones, are supported through their end-of-life journeys. All donations will make an impact by providing:
- Better end-of-life care for people that provides a one-stop service for those with a life-limiting illness.
- Better support for caregivers, family and friends.
- Better, more coordinated care across the entire healthcare system.
- Better awareness and understanding of hospice palliative care.
Besides feeling good about yourself for doing something for others, giving back is also good for your physical health. Doing for others may stimulate the release of endorphins, which has been linked to improved nervous and immune system functions! Research has shown that the good feelings you experience when helping others may be just as important to your health as exercise and a healthy diet.
Giving back in all shapes and forms strengthens our community, brings people together and provides us with valuable experience and insight. It feels good to make a difference! It feels good to give!
