Our Stories

Meet Our Client – Dan

Having something to look forward to each week helps Dan get through his days as a person living with Multiple Sclerosis. Each week he meets with the Day Hospice group to share stories, has a good meal and tries new activities. Attending the program allows him to think about something other than his illness as well as connect with others. He’s always the first to crack a joke and bring our spirits up in the Perth office. He’s an inspiration to all of us and to his 15-year-old daughter who (like all teenage daughters) keeps him on the edge of his seat!  To read Dan's story, click here.

Life is far too short

We were reminded of this when we attended a wake for one of our long-time clients, Lois. She received our Meals on Wheels deliveries and was an active member of our Thursday Diners Club. Through these programs, she made friends that she connected with right up until her last days with us. Her family thanked us profusely for providing our services to Lois and others like her. The truth is, we are grateful for the opportunity to have met and experienced life with Lois. Knowing that we made a difference in her life means the world to us. Rest in peace.  Full story.

“You need the right tool for the job, otherwise you are handicapping yourself.” ~ Frank As a mechanic for over 20 years, Frank knows how frustrating it is to work with subpar tools. The job in front of you seems impossible and overwhelming. On the flip side, investing in the right tools makes your job easier, increases your productivity and gets the job done right. For a person like Frank who lives with Multiple Sclerosis, his cane and the Hospice Day Program at CHSLC are two of the right tools for his health and well-being!  Frank's full story.
