Light Up Hospice

Remembering your loved one during the holiday season.

The month of December is a time of year when many cherished memories are created through celebrating time honoured traditions at family gatherings.

For many, celebrating the holiday season is a joyous occasion, however for those members in our community who are grieving the loss of a loved one, this time of year can often be very difficult.

We invite everyone in our community to celebrate the memory of loved ones who have passed and allow your memories to shine brightly by becoming a part of our Light up Hospice event.

Event Details
