Letter: Kelowna Hospice House food not the best

To the editor:

I should like to express my great appreciation for the wonderful care I recently received at Hospice House, Kelowna.

It is a place of perfection, where everyone with whom I came in contact, including all staff and every volunteer, is a healer. Each visitor who came to see me felt the same sense of overwhelming goodness that permeates the place.  We have a jewel in our community that we should all celebrate it.  Awareness of its presence must be of great comfort and peace of mind to anyone experiencing end-of-life issues in the family.

Criticism of the food provided to patients by Interior Health Authority is, indeed, very valid.  The fact that IHA does not use its purchasing power to obtain great contracts from local food industries to provide good, fresh, local nourishment to its clients is, in my opinion, disgraceful!

That being said, I want only to express my feelings of absolute inspiration and heartfelt gratitude to all those marvellous caregivers at Hospice House.

Joan Richard,

Kelowna
