The Near North Palliative Care Network (NNPCN) is holding its sixth annual Music Night Fundraiser for 7 pm – Friday May 05, 2017 at St. Peter the Apostle Church, 299 Airport Rd, North Bay, ON P1B 8W7.

Among musical attractions and performers, you will enjoy Rob and Donna Lee Guillemette, Music City Ukulele Club, North Bay Baytones, PADDLE Program, Tom Arens Trio, Jason Brock and more!

Tickets are $10.00 for adults ~ $5.00 for children ~ 5 and under free. Tickets can be bought at the entrance on the day of the event, or in advance at our Office at St. Joseph’s Motherhouse, 2020 Main Street West, North Bay ON, P1B 2X6, phone 705-497-9239, email [email protected]

Part of the evening includes a Silent Auction. Building on the inaugural success of this event, we continue to make each subsequent event better than ever. We value the support of the community and ask you to consider a donation to the silent auction table or with your presence at the event.

Near North Palliative Care Network (Nipissing-Parry Sound) is our Community Hospice in North Bay since 1987.

We provide compassionate support for the terminally ill person and their families. Our volunteers play a special role in helping individuals and their families through the dying process. We provide information, companionship, deep listening, and healing in the face of a terminal illness.

We also provide grief and bereavement support. Trained volunteers are available on a 24-hour basis. We are a recognized charity and our service is provided at no cost to the client or family.

Fundraisers such as the Music Night and our annual Butterfly Release at the North Bay waterfront on July 15th, 2017, are critical to sustaining service provision. This is especially true in the coming years as there is more and more demand for our services.

If you have any questions or wat to donate items to our Silent Auction, please do not hesitate to contact Music Night committee through our email: [email protected]

Thank you for considering our request. We look forward to hearing from you soon. With our gratitude,

“SENIORS HELPING SENIORS” NNPCN PROJECT TO BE LAUNCHED IN AUGUST!

EMPOWERING OUR COMMUNITY THROUGH EDUCATION AND TRAINING

Near North Palliative Care Network, YOUR LOCAL VISITING HOSPICE FOR THE LAST 28 YEARS, will be launching their new Public Services Project “SENIORS HELPING SENIORS” this August 2016.

A series of free monthly training sessions for Seniors and Caregivers will be happening at St. Joseph’s Motherhouse from September 2016 on. The idea behind the project “SENIORS HELPING SENIORS” is to empower the community with free education and training about End of Life.

68% of our Seniors choose to age and die at home. This means that we need a massive percentage of our population trained to give care to their loved ones at home while keeping a high quality of life as caregivers, and giving high-quality end-of-life to their loved ones.

All Seniors and Caregivers of our community are invited to participate and there is no charge. Dates and themes of the series to be announced soon! STAY TUNED!

NEAR NORTH PALLIATIVE CARE NETWORK: YOUR LOCAL VISITING HOSPICE FOR THE LAST 28 YEARS!

Please remember NNPCN between your Hydro and telephone bills, and SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL VISITING HOSPICE ALL YEAR THROUGH!

YOUR DONATION MAKES FREE PALLIATIVE CARE VISITING HOSPICE AND BEREAVEMENT SUPPORT SERVICES HAPPEN IN OUR COMMUNITY!

THANK YOU!

WHAT IS ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis)?
ALS is a neurodegenerative disease where the nerve cells that control your muscles die. The ‘living wires’ which connect your brain to your muscles degenerate, leading to a loss of mobility, loss of speech and eventually impact the ability to breathe.

This is a terminal disease. ALS does not have a cure nor an effective treatment. In Canada, approx. 2500-3000 people are living with ALS; 1000 will succumb to the disease and 1000 will be newly diagnosed each year. The lifespan after diagnosis is on average two to five years.

To get involved or support ALS in the North Bay Area go to ALS North Bay Support Group
