An Open Letter that Shines a Light on Hospice
Written by Chris Rhodes, Producer, YourTV Cornwall
Carefor Hospice Cornwall holds a special place in my heart and in the hearts of many others who have experienced its compassionate care. The annual Telethon organized by YourTV (Cogeco) to support the Hospice is a testament to the strong community backing and the value placed on the services provided.

The fact that since 2009 Hospice has raised over $1.5 million through the Telethon speaks volumes about the generosity and support of the community. These funds contribute to maintaining the high-quality care and nurturing environment that Hospice is known for.
My personal experiences with my stepfather and uncle passing away at Hospice brought home the importance of families receiving exceptional care and comfort during such difficult moments in life. The fact that the staff at the Hospice delivered care with such empathy and how they created a home-like atmosphere is a testament to their dedication and professionalism.
Cornwall Hospice went beyond just taking care of the physical needs of my loved ones and considered the emotional well-being of my family. They created an environment where we felt at ease and as comfortable as possible during our difficult times making a significant difference in our grieving process. This continued after our loved ones passed speaking volumes to the lasting impact the Hospice has on the families it serves. The way in which the facility honours those who pass with dignity and compassion further highlights its commitment to providing exceptional end-of-life care.Death is inevitable and everyone deals with it differently. Experiencing it with the compassion of the Hospice staff makes it more bearable, not just for my family but for every family that passes through its doors.
As much as my family misses my stepfather and uncle, we recognize how fortunate we are to have had Carefor Hospice Cornwall in our lives when we needed them and in our community for other families. We at YourTV are proud to be part of helping Hospice to continue to offer their essential services year after year.
