Carol Dignan's story truly exemplifies the essence of the care we provide at Halifax Health - Hospice.
Ernie Dignan, her dearly beloved husband of 33 years, passed away peacefully at the Care Center in Edgewater after battling ALS for 2 years and 8 months.
He was able to live out his last days with dignity and honor surrounded by family and friends. Carol attributes so much of his continued happiness throughout the course of his end-of-life journey to the care he received from Halifax Health - Hospice.
Since 1979, Halifax Health - Hospice has established itself as the respected leader in the local community for end-of-life care. We are committed to providing extraordinary and dignified comfort and compassion to every person and family.
Every day, Halifax Health - Hospice cares for patients and families through a uniquely specialized team of registered nurses, licensed social workers, spiritual care counselors, Hospice aides, complementary therapists, and more than 600 volunteers who are on-call 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
