Captain Positivity flew into Chatham-Kent Hospice today to visit our residents and their families. He delivered cookies as well as messages of support and encouragement.
“Hospice is always a memorable visit for me. Families are going through a difficult time but the atmosphere is so welcoming and positive. Being a bright spot in their day, spreading positive energy is what the 12 Days of Positivity is all about!” said Captain Positivity.
“People often think Hospice will be a sad and depressing place, but after visiting they realize families really can enjoy the time they have left with their loved one in a bright, calm and peaceful environment,” said Jessica Smith, Executive Director of Chatham-Kent Hospice.
During his visit Captain Positivity also thanked our team of staff and volunteers for the work they do caring for families as they prepare to say goodbye.
