Quilton’s Story

There isn’t a day that goes by here at Hospice Halifax where a patient or loved one isn’t bundled up in the warmth, comfort, and security of a blanket or, more often — a homemade quilt like me, Quilton.

When I first came to Hospice Halifax nearly three years ago, I was nervous because all I knew about Hospice was that it’s a place where people come to die.

But then I met my first patient, a woman with cancer.

And I learned what you likely know — that Hospice Halifax is so much more. It’s a place where I get to be a part of beautiful moments like…

…the many times our housekeeper, Joanne, finds a quilt like me that just perfectly matches the bright and bold personality of a patient and places it on their bed. It creates a space that truly feels like it was made for them specifically.

…the moments when a loved one learns I was handmade, making them feel so special. I think it’s because I represent caring people like YOU.

…And the really tender moments like one just the other night when one of my dying friends in Oak room was cold. While I warmed her up, I saw her smile for the first time all evening. Later that night, I moved from my friend to her daughter, passing along a good night hug as she fell asleep covered in the comfort and love of her mom.

That was one of the last nights they spent together.

And I’ve come to realize I represent the warmth, comfort, and security that YOU give Hospice Halifax patients and their loved ones.

With each of your gifts, your love strengthens my ability to share these moments with more patients each day.

Your gift helps weave together a quilt of support. Thank you!
