About Red Deer Hospice:

The Red Deer Hospice (RDH) is a residential end-of-life care facility for the terminally ill that was founded in 2005. The Hospice has 10 individual rooms and includes family support areas, a dining area and a sanctuary. There are no set fees to stay at the Hospice and no individual is denied care due to financial difficulty.

RDH provides professional nursing care 24 hours a day, personal support, companionship, bereavement and spiritual support in a home-like setting. Their programming focuses on the physical, emotional, spiritual and psychological needs of the residents and their loved ones. Clients are admitted based on their need for significant comfort care rather than acute medical care. RDH also offers grief and loss support programs to anyone who has experienced the death of someone important to them and wants to learn how to manage their grief.

Financial Review:

In F2014 administrative costs were 3% of revenues and fundraising costs were 15% of donations. RDH had funding reserves of $1.4m, which cover 94% of annual program costs. Total revenues in F2014 were 17% lower than the prior year due to drops in donations and special events revenues. RDH received over 40% of its annual revenues from Alberta Health Services.
