KAMLOOPS — Kamloops Hospice Association has opened the doors to its new ‘Outlook for Peace’ building.

The idea came from a Kamloops couple, Jeff and Joan Glaicar, who spent a lot of time at hospice while they were saying goodbye to their dear friend Joanne.

“She was young. She had two children. My wife helped her children throughout the journey, which was a 10-year journey with brain cancer,” Jeff Glaicar told CFJC News.

Car raffle for hospice care

Car raffle for hospice care

They are the happy moments in the most trying of times.

Kamloops Hospice Association, which has 12 private rooms at its Whiteshield Crescent location, is there to provide care, love and support to people who are at the end of their lives.

Hospice care is patient and family centred, which means “if someone wants ice cream for breakfast, we do that,” executive director Wendy Marlow says. “We’ve had staff barbecue up a beautiful steak and just put it to a person’s lips.”

The rooms overlook beautiful Peterson Creek Park, making it “a beautiful spot for families and for people at end of life,” Marlow says.

Kamloops Hospice Association normally hosts a gala each year to raise significant money for its operations, since it is one of only a handful of “independent” hospices in the province. Interior Health covers just less than 50% of the annual budget, and KHA has to come up with at least another $1 million each year to keep the doors open. The organization’s last gala before COVID-19 raised $170,000, but the event has been cancelled the past 2 years due to the pandemic.

“You can imagine losing that has been huge,” she says.

That is a lot of funding to make up, but Marlow believes the organization has found a solution. It is conducting the “Let’s Get Electrified” raffle for a 2018 Chevrolet Bolt Premier, which is an electric vehicle valued at $28,000. It has has a range of nearly 400 kilometres, leather and heated seats in both the front and back, and high-quality cameras and screens.
