The Light Up Your Life Hospice Garden, July 2018:

Our beautiful Hospice Garden continues to “grow” in so many ways!

Phase II of the Light Up Your Life HOSPICE GARDEN was completed Summer 2018 … bringing the beauty, colour and joy of nature to the patients, residents, families and staff of WVHC Hospice and Continuing Care. 

 Phase II includes the re-design and planting of the large raised perennial bed and the revitalization of 4 gazebos, plus the installation of 3 more beautiful red benches, along with 3 large (2’x2’x2’) cement planters which will be used by Continuing Care Recreation Therapy and Residents for their yearly Spring planting. We are supported in this project by our many Community, Individual & Business Partners.

Four benches in total, sponsored by the Rotary Club of Stony Plain and the Korean Veterans Association.
