DAMARIS ARGUERA Foothills Country Hospice Society The Foothills Country Hospice Society (FCHS) is a grassroots community sponsored organization directed by a volunteer board of directors and is a registered charity and not for profit Society WHO WE ARE WHAT WE DO FCHS is dedicated to providing expert compassionate care to people who are terminally ill and to their families.

The Board s primary work to date has been to establish a vision, raise funds and awareness, and to ultimately design and build one of the first rural, purpose-built, free standing adult Hospice homes in Canada ESTABLISHMENT WHERE WE OPERATE On January 28, 2008, the Foothills Country Hospice accepted its first patient.

The fruition of the Board s vision has been realized through the dedication and effort of over 100 volunteers from the Foothills area south of Calgary, Alberta

Prior to the Hospice being open, many people had to leave their families and community supports in order to receive care as they approached death, since there is no hospital in Okotoks nor a full time Home Care service. The desire to have people remain with family and friends in their home community was the motivating force behind FCHS drive to build the Hospice home in service of our communities most vulnerable members REFERENCES CONTACT INFORMATION OUR CLIENTS All Hospice admissions for Calgary and area are managed centrally through the Pathways system. A palliative care expert – usually a doctor or nurse in the Regional Hospice Palliative Care Service – either at hospitals or in the community, can request a hospice placement for a person after assessing their suitability for this kind of facility.

Criteria include having a terminal diagnosis with an expected length of life of less than 3 months. People being admitted to a hospice agree that they are not seeking life prolonging interventions nor further investigations.

Since there is often a waiting list for hospice placement, criteria have been established by Alberta Health Services in order to assign a bed according to care needs. People needing admission who are currently residing in their own homes usually are assigned the highest priority. HOW OUR PROGRAM BENEFITS SENIORS The FCHS benefits seniors in specific because hospice palliative care is an approach to care that recognizes the importance of many aspects of living and caring as people approach a time of death. It pays attention to physical needs, supporting conversations, and practical preparation, providing expert pain and symptom management, allowing opportunity for spiritual reflection, and preparation, dealing with family issues, and supporting friends and families before and after the death of a loved on.
These key components make up hospice palliative care. It allows individuals to live as well as they can, as they recognize approaching death, and can provide a healing and hope filled time.

End of life care

Background

Dementia is a progressive condition for which there is currently no cure. All people who develop dementia will have dementia at the end of their lives, either as the condition they die from or as a factor which may complicate the care of a different condition. Diminishing capacity means that it is important for the person with dementia to plan for the end of their life at an early stage. Problems with capacity and communication can also contribute to undignified treatment and the under treatment of pain in people with dementia at the end of their lives. Significant, co-ordinated and holistic support is needed to ensure that all people with dementia end their lives with dignity, free from pain and in the place of their choosing.

Alzheimer’s Society calls for:

  • Ensuring a good death for people with dementia. The Department of Health (2008) suggests that, for many, a good death would involve being treated as an individual, with dignity and respect. without pain and other symptoms, in familiar surroundings and in the company of close family and friends. Too often, however, people with dementia receive undignified treatment and are ending their lives in pain (Alzheimer’s Society 2012, Health Service Ombudsman, 2011, Commission on Dignity in Care for Older People, 2012, Royal College of Psychiatrists 2011) and partnership between dementia care and palliative care are undeveloped (NCPC, 2009). People with dementia may not be referred for specialist end of life care or receive inappropriate treatment. Alzheimer’s Society believes that people with dementia have the same right to a good death as people with other health conditions.
  • Advance planning for end of life care. People with dementia should be involved in decisions about end of life care wherever possible. However, as dementia advances, in many cases capacity is lost and decisions need to be made on behalf of the person with dementia. Advanced planning for end of life care is vital. At present, taboos about discussing death and poor understanding of dementia mean that these conversations do not take place between people with dementia, families, friends and health and social care professionals. People with dementia should be supported to use their rights, under the Mental Capacity Act in England and Wales, to identify whom they want to make decisions and any treatments they would not want. In Northern Ireland, the Assembly is developing mental capacity legislation.
  • Improved training for health and social care professionals. Declining ability to communicate characterises the later stages of dementia. Health and social care professionals should be trained to provide high-quality, person-centred care to improve dignity and quality of life even when communication has diminished. People working with someone at the end of their life also need to be able to communicate sensitively themselves, both to families and to the person with dementia, following best practice set out by the Social Care Institute for Excellence (www.scie.org.uk ).
  • Focus on quality of life, rather than length of life, in the final stages of dementia. Withholding or withdrawing treatment is especially ethically complex and emotionally challenging for a person with dementia as they may lack the ability to communicate, the capacity to make decisions and may not have prepared instructions about their wishes. The NICE-SCIE Guideline on dementia states that artificial feeding and hydration should not commence if disinclination to eat or inability to swallow is considered to be part of the progression of the disease and will not change in future (NICE-SCIE, 2007). Alzheimer’s Society believes that when someone with dementia is close to dying the main issue of concern should be quality of life and quality of death, not length of life. However, it is important that there is an honest and open discussion between medical professionals and family, friends and carers about any decisions to withhold or withdraw treatment. The quality of life and comfort of the person with dementia is paramount. Specialist palliative and comfort care should be available to the person at all times and appropriate emotional support should be available for families.
  • Improved emotional and spiritual support. Research has suggested that the emotional and spiritual needs of people with dementia are disproportionately neglected (Sampson et al, 2006). It is still possible for a person with advanced dementia to be depressed, distressed or upset. People with dementia must receive holistic care that recognises and responds to individual wishes and needs.
  • Improved planning and co-ordination of care. Only half of people who express a preference to die at home actually die at home (ONS, 2014). This places pressure on the NHS, causing 52 per cent of unplanned hospital admissions, and adversely impacts on the quality of care received by a person with dementia (ONS, 2014). Alzheimer’s Society supports the government’s goal of ensuring that more people die in a place of their choosing (Department of Health, 2008). To achieve this, the Society calls for the implementation of the Palliative Care Funding Review (Hughes-Hallet et al 2011). This would provide commissioners with funding for palliative care, regardless of setting, in-line with a person with dementia’s wishes.
  • Implement the recommendations of the Leadership Alliance for the Care of Dying People. In July 2014, new best practice guidance from the LACDP replaced the Liverpool Care Pathway. Alzheimer’s Society supports the LACDP’s recommendations that, in the final weeks and days of life, the dying person should be the focus of care. However, Alzheimer’s Society is concerned that the guidance does not have statutory force.
  • Assisted dying. Alzheimer’s Society is not calling for a change in the law on assisted dying or euthanasia, although we monitor changes in legislation to ensure that people with dementia are appropriately safeguarded. We believe that people with dementia are entitled to good end of life care. This includes use of advance care planning and advanced decisions to refuse treatment so that people with dementia can receive the treatment and care that responds to individual needs and wishes.

RED DEER HOSPICE SOCIETY

Our Mission

The Red Deer Hospice Society will provide physical, social, emotional and spiritual care in a community based, home-like setting for individuals who are dying and for their loved ones.

Our Vision

The Red Deer Hospice Society recognizes death as a part of life’s journey. Our commitment is to provide compassionate care so people can die in peace, comfort and dignity with support for them and their loved ones.

About Our Charity

The Red Deer Hospice is a free standing residential end-of-life care facility located in the quiet neighborhood of Anders on the Lake in south Red Deer. Our ten private rooms ensure peace, intimacy and dignity for residents and family.

Our life-affirming approach provides an alternative to hospitalization or care in the home. Our care follows the hospice palliative care philosophy of advocating for the needs of the terminally ill; care that neither hastens death nor prolongs life but preserves quality of life, emphasizing living fully until the end in comfort and with dignity. Focus is placed on the physical, emotional, spiritual and psychological needs of the resident and their loved ones.

With comfort and compassion our main priorities, residents are assessed on an ongoing basis; pain is effectively managed and the treatment plan is adapted to respond to changing conditions. With 24-hour professional nursing care, trained staff and volunteers, we work together to ensure that each resident receives individualized care. Loved ones are informed and active decision makers.

Eligible clients will be those who have been diagnosed with a terminal illness and are declared to be palliative. The admission process to the Hospice starts with a conversation with your physician, charge nurse or home care nurse. Referral and admission are directed by Alberta Health Services (AHS) Home Care Case Manager. Admission to the Hospice is based on medical criteria not the client’s ability to pay.

Pet Food Pantries Offer Relief to Animal Owners Struggling With Bills –

Pet Food Pantries Offer Relief to Animal Owners Struggling With Bills

Misael Lopez and his pit bull Cookie visited a new pet food pantry in the Bronx last month. The pantry gave away 2,000 pounds of pet food in one month. Credit Nicole Bengiveno/The New York Times

Cookie flirted with the man at the front counter with the swagger of a born charmer. She tilted her head, fixed him with a knowing look, and leaned forward on two meaty paws.

“Here Mama, this is the one you like,” the man, Fernando Cruz, cooed as he slipped her a bacon-flavored treat, not for the first time. “You want more? I got you.”

Cookie, a snow-white pit bull with light gray spots, knows the hand that feeds her. She has become a regular visitor at a new pet food pantry in the Bronx that sends free Costco-size bags of kibble home with owners who may not have enough money to feed themselves, let alone their animals.

Animal Care Centers of NYC. a nonprofit that runs the city’s animal shelters, opened this pet food pantry in December, and in the first month alone, the pantry gave out more than 2,000 pounds of food for 71 dogs and 50 cats.

Across the country, the pet food pantry is the latest addition to the food banks. soup kitchens and homeless shelters that serve as a lifeline for people living paycheck to paycheck, if they are employed at all. A small but growing number of dedicated pantries have sprung up, often in response to pleas from people who see their pets as family and spend their last dollar on a can of Purina, even if it means going hungry themselves.

“Pets and people simply belong together,” said Dr. Emily Weiss, the vice president for research and development at the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, adding that pet food pantries help create a safety net for pets and their owners. “Just because somebody can’t afford a specific aspect of care doesn’t mean they don’t belong together.”

The pantries have become part of a broader movement among animal welfare organizations, pet lovers and others that aims to reduce the population of animals in shelters by assisting pet owners before they resort to giving up their companions. The ASPCA has awarded $400,000 in grants since 2010 to 121 organizations nationwide to support pantries, food banks, and other programs that distribute free food for pets.

But some critics have questioned whether such efforts are misdirected. Joel Berg, executive director of Hunger Free America. a nonprofit that was formerly called the New York City Coalition Against Hunger, said he could not support the idea of pet food pantries when so many people were going hungry.

“I understand why this is important, but half the food pantries in New York City don’t have enough food to meet human needs,” Mr. Berg said, noting that he was a cat owner. “We should have fully stocked pantries for humans before we feed pets.”

Supporters of the pantries counter that they are, in fact, helping people by helping their pets, citing research that shows pets can help lower stress and blood pressure, improve moods, and provide emotional comfort to their owners.

“That bond is still the same, no matter what your checkbook looks like,” said Stacey Coleman, executive director of the Animal Farm Foundation. a nonprofit that provided a $12,000 grant to the Bronx pet food pantry.

Cookie, for one, has been glued to the side of Misael Lopez since he rescued her and another dog, Fifa, sitting by a Bronx road in October. Both looked so sad and lost, he recalled, that he had to take them home. “I always wanted pitbulls and these two came about,” Mr. Lopez, 31, said. “Ever since I found them, I say they are my two blessings — two gifts from God.”

Still, Mr. Lopez, a father of two who earns $9.50 an hour stocking shelves at a Family Dollar store, had little money to feed the dogs after paying his rent and other expenses. By coming to the Bronx pantry, he estimated that he had saved about $60 a month on dog food.

Across the New York region, pet food pantries are thriving. Each month, the Hudson Valley Pet Food Pantry in White Plains feeds about 775 dogs and cats belonging to older adults, disabled people and veterans, among others, said Susan Katz, a retired administrative assistant who founded the pantry in 2010 with three friends. The pantry’s $102,000 annual budget is covered by grants and fund-raisers, including pet food drives at local supermarkets and pet stores.

On Staten Island, a pet food pantry was added to an existing pantry in 2014 to help pet owners, many of whom were hard hit by Hurricane Sandy. said Warren Niu, who oversees the operation. Sponsored by VCA. a national provider of pet health care services, VCA Charities. and the Council of Jewish Organizations of Staten Island. the pantry gives away food donated by the company Hill’s Pet Nutrition to as many as 100 people a week. It had to set a monthly limit of one bag per household because it kept running out of food.

Dogology. a pet store and training center in Canton, Conn. set up a pet food pantry in a back storeroom in 2013 after hearing from local food pantries that people were coming in and asking, “What about our pets?” Since the pantry began, it has given away about 9,600 pounds of dog and cat food, as well as treats, pet beds, dog leashes and toys. Marissa Garson, an owner of the store, said that some patrons, once they recover financially, return with donations for the pantry.

In the Bronx, the new pet food pantry, in the Fordham neighborhood, is part of an existing admissions center run by Animal Care Centers of NYC, and is open to any borough resident who registers a pet, regardless of income, said Ken Foster, who coordinates the organization’s community dog program. Regulars include pet owners out of work, older people on fixed incomes, and one man who had visited nearby restaurants to ask for scraps for his pit bull.

Samantha Goodman, 21, regularly picks up a bag of Iams cat food for her two kittens, Socks and Mittens, saving about $40 a month. Ms. Goodman, who lives with a boyfriend, said last week that money had been tight since she lost her job as a cashier at a Bronx deli, which closed in December. “It helps a lot,” she said. “It takes stress off of us because we don’t have to worry, if the rent is due, where the money would come from to buy the food.”

Guillermo Maccow, 16, found out about the pantry when he brought in a stray dog last week. He said he would keep it in mind the next time he was short on money. “It will give people a chance to keep their dogs,” he said, adding that he already had to switch to a cheaper brand of food for his dog, Chooky, because he had been spending about $60 a month.

The other morning, Mr. Cruz, an admissions counselor at the center, carried a 28-pound bag of Professional Plus Chicken and Pea Formula from the back as Cookie eagerly circled the waiting area. He placed the bag on the counter. Cookie sniffed it.

Then Mr. Lopez hoisted the bag onto his shoulder, and with Cookie by his side, headed out the door for home.

Munsinger Gardens

From Sawmill to Flower Garden

The history of St. Cloud’s Munsinger Gardens may be compared to the garden’s well-worn paths; for both have interesting and unexpected turns. During the 1880s the lower east bank of the Mississippi River was the site of a sawmill. But by 1915 the city purchased the area for use as a neighborhood park. Eventually, the site became known as Riverside Park and Munsinger Gardens, the latter section named in honor of a former superintendent of parks, Joseph Munsinger. Munsinger Gardens has experienced many different stages of development. Improvements to the gardens occurred during the Great Depression through the Works Progress Administration. Projects from this period included planting trees and flowerbeds. Other additions included the creation of rock-lined paths, a lily pond, and a fountain. However, most of the work in developing the garden was directed by Joseph Munsinger. The first greenhouse was built in 1938. While the original greenhouse is gone, new ones stand in its place, and garden staff continues the tradition of growing flowers that help beautify this wonderful jewel known as Munsinger Gardens.

What Is Health Economics?

Health Economics is an applied field of study that allows for the systematic and rigorous examination of the problems faced in promoting health for all. By applying economic theories of consumer, producer and social choice, health economics aims to understand the behavior of individuals, health care providers, public and private organizations, and governments in decision-making.

From economic modeling to policy analysis, I am confident that the skills I have gained throughout the year will stay with me throughout my life. I am beyond lucky to have been at this incredible school alongside inspiring classmates, learning from professors who are true experts in this field. The MHS in Health Economics here at Hopkins is by far the best thing I could have done to start my career.

Health economics is used to promote health through the study of health care providers, hospitals and clinics, managed care and public health promotion activities. Health economists apply the theories of production, efficiency, disparities, competition, and regulation to better inform the public and private sector on the most efficient, or cost-effective, and equitable course of action. Such research can include the economic evaluation of new technologies, as well as the study of appropriate prices, anti-trust policy, optimal public and private investment, and strategic behavior.

Health economics can also be used to evaluate how certain social problems, such as market failure and inequitable allocation of resources, can impact on the health of a community or population. Health economics can then be used to directly inform government on the best course of action with regards to regulation, national health packages, defining health insurance packages and other national health programs.

Faculty of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School are currently conducting research on a wide variety of topics including the impact of health care, health insurance and preventative services on health lifestyles as well as providing research and advice to governments around the globe to enable a more effective and equitable allocation of resources. Further information on faculty retreat can be found on individual faculty research pages.

About our Hospice
The Crossroads Inlet Centre Hospice opened in 2003 in Port Moody. It is a ten private bedroom facility that represents an option for those with a terminal illness who are not able to stay at home yet do not need all the services of a hospital. Crossroads Inlet Centre Hospice patients live their final days with peace and comfort in a home-like setting where family, friends and pets are welcome. Crossroads Inlet Centre Hospice staff and volunteers bring a unique skill set in assisting our patients and families to live through the dying process, embracing the philosophy that death is accepted as a continuum of life.

Our Facility
Our non-smoking facility offers ten private bedrooms. Each room is fully furnished and has provisions for family members to stay overnight. A kitchen, dining room, family lounge, quiet room, relaxation room, family washroom and two rooftop gardens comprise the common living areas for patients and visitors to enjoy. For a small donation, coffee and tea is available for all visitors and meals can be arranged in advance.

Our Services
Our care is delivered by Fraser Health medical personnel, our Crossroads staff, spiritual care, dedicated and committed volunteers. This interdisciplinary team includes family members in decisions and the many aspects of care and attention to achieve our high standards of what a hospice experience can be.

Position Statement: Medical Assistance in Dying
Crossroad Hospice’s position on the provision of palliative care at Inlet Centre has not changed as a result of the Supreme Court’s recent decision and legislative change. Crossroads Hospice staff and volunteers will continue to assist with the delivery of palliative care in a dignified and compassionate manner to all of our patients and their families in their time of need.

Crossroads Hospice provides palliative care assistance in partnership with the physicians and nurses who form part of Fraser Health’s palliative care team. MAiD (Medical Assistance in Dying) falls outside of the palliative care services offered by Fraser Health and our hospice residence. We will continue to work with our partner to provide quality care within the framework established by the Province of BC and Fraser Health specifically.

The North Shore Hospice Society

The North Shore Hospice Society ( NSHS ) is a registered charity governed by a volunteer Board of Directors made up of health care professionals and interested citizens who are elected annually by the membership.

Heather Tak is the part-time Administrator and recording secretary of the Society .

The North Shore Hospice

Since 1982, the Society advocated for a free-standing Hospice to serve the North Shore, and was a proud partner in the capital campaign to build and equip the new North Shore Hospice. The Society contributed $500,000 to the campaign. With the opening of the new Hospice in 2010, the Society changed its name from Lions Gate Hospice Society and now focuses on three significant goals:

The New Palliative and Supportive Care Day Program. A first in Western Canada, the Day Program provides patients diagnosed with serious illness earlier access to the facilities and staff at the Hospice to manage symptoms and receive support. The Day Program offers weekly visits to the North Shore Hospice for regular care, support, family respite and fellowship. This kind of care is outside the mandate of the provincial health system. The Day Program is fully financed by the North Shore Hospice Society.

The Bill Field Community Fund. Named after a long-time champion of hospice palliative patients, the Bill Fund provides financial grants for patients and families in need to help with the unexpected extra costs that can arise. The Bill Fund recognizes that many palliative patients remain at home and those in need require support to stay in the community.

Community Outreach and Education: The Society sponsors the annual Honour a Life community memorial event, offers regular education events for the community and presents to religious, community and service groups on the North Shore. The Society website provides 24 hour access to news, information and a Question and Answer feature written by a local palliative care physician.this website to provide information to palliative patients, their families, friends and the broader community.

The NSHS also continues its tradition of providing the coffee, tea and cookies available to palliative care patients and their families on 7W at Lions Gate Hospital. In addition, the Society provides each registrant in the North Shore Palliative Care Program with a copy of the book Final Gifts.

NSHS raises funds to maintain its support of the Palliative Care Day Program, fund and administer the Bill Field Community Fund, provide public education and memorial events and to update and maintain this website.

NSHS gratefully acknowledges the financial support of the following:

Our life-affirming approach provides an alternative to hospitalization or care in the home. Our care follows the hospice palliative care philosophy of advocating for the needs of the terminally ill; care that neither hastens death nor prolongs life but preserves quality of life, emphasizing living fully until the end in comfort and with dignity. Focus is placed on the physical, emotional, spiritual and psychological needs of the resident and their loved ones.

With comfort and compassion our main priorities, residents are assessed on an ongoing basis; pain is effectively managed and the treatment plan is adapted to respond to changing conditions. With 24-hour professional nursing care, trained staff and volunteers, we work together to ensure that each resident receives individualized care. Loved ones are informed and active decision makers.

Eligible clients will be those who have been diagnosed with a terminal illness and are declared to be palliative. The admission process to the Hospice starts with a conversation with your physician, charge nurse or home care nurse. Referral and admission are directed by Alberta Health Services (AHS) Home Care Case Manager. Admission to the Hospice is based on medical criteria not the client’s ability to pay.
