About Red Deer Hospice:
Red Deer Hospice (RDH) is a hospice staffed with specialized nurses to provide physical, social, emotional, and spiritual care in a community-based, home-like setting for people who are dying and for their loved ones. Red Deer Hospice, opened in 2005, is a residential end-of-life care facility for the terminally ill. Aside from 24-hour terminal care support, the charity offers in-house bereavement programs to residents and their family, as well as outreach community programs to people who have lost a loved one.
The hospice is 10,400 square feet with a kitchen, multiple family sitting areas, a sanctuary, work places for staff, and 10 resident rooms. Each room has a hospital bed and a sitting area with a pull-out couch, chairs, and a television. There are no fees to stay at the hospice. Red Deer Hospice reports that its occupancy exceeds 90%. Therefore, the charity’s expansion plans, aimed to be completed by the fall of 2019, include six new private resident care rooms; two multi-purpose rooms for respite care and day programs; an expanded kitchen, medication room, and nursing station; an updated sanctuary space; and more administrative offices and shower rooms.
Bereavement programs include one-on-one sessions with bereavement support coordinators, eight-week group support sessions facilitated by trained volunteers or staff, and a butterfly-releasing event to provide comfort to friends and family of residents who have passed away. In F2017, 21 participants attended the spring, summer, and fall support groups.
Red Deer Hospice is a medium-sized charity with donations of $1.0m in F2017. Its administrative costs are 3% of revenues and fundraising costs are 18% of donations. For every dollar donated, 79 cents go to the cause, falling within Ci’s reasonable range for overhead spending. RDH has funding reserves of $1.9m, including $28k in donor-endowed funds. Excluding donor-endowed funds, the funding reserves can cover 1.1 years of program costs.
At $844k, grants from Alberta Health Services were 43% of total revenues in F2017. The charity reports that Alberta Health Services has committed to granting $2.8m yearly once the expansion is complete, subsequently reducing the need for donations to fund operations.
This charity report is an update that has been sent to Red Deer Hospice for review. Changes and edits may be forthcoming.
