A plan is underway to help people nearing the end of their lives to live as fully and comfortably as possible and to support those who are grieving the death of loved ones. Five local residents have been part of a steering committee working on plans to create the New West Hospice Society. “It’s a really important piece of our social fabric to recognize how important this is,” said Kay Johnson. “I was reading some stuff about compassionate communities the other day. One of the things that really struck me was that the goal should be that everybody in your community is as comfortable as they can be talking about dying and death as they are about birthing and life. Johnson, who spent much of her nursing career working in hospice and palliative care, believes in community members assisting each other through something that should be a normal life process. I often say, I don’t know how people who don’t have a background in health care navigate the system. We know there is a lot of people who are marginalized, who don’t have families, and we really need to reach out and do something about that. Along with helping people through the grieving process, the society will also recruit, train and support volunteers, educate the community about death and grief and promote the formation of a compassionate community. The idea of creating a hospice society in New Westminster arose when about 200 people, including Johnson and Brock Nicholson, attended an advance-care planning fair at Century House in April 2015. “It’s really that community taking care of... “A lot of the actual palliative care, end-of-life care and bereavement support is not done by the professional teams – that is a small and very important part, but about 85 per cent of it is done by friends and family, neighbours. Vivian Wong is passionate about building the hospice society, having been a caregiver to various family members in the past. “It’s to dispel some of the fear that prevents people from wanting to go there and talk about it, engage in it,” she said. “It’s something that all of humanity shares, but most of society shies away from the topic. Wendy Johnson, a retired principal and school trustee in Langley, once worked with Kay Johnson on a pilot project that sought to get kids talking about issues around dying, grieving and loss.

What would you think if one day your wife disappeared, and everyone believed you were responsible? How would you feel if the only thing that kept you from being arrested was your child's insistence that his mommy told him she was leaving? And what would you do if you suspected your son was lying? One day Craig Lofgren came home to discover that his wife was gone. He and his kids have been living in a nightmare ever since. The police think he killed her; the neighbors do, too. The only bright spot is Robin McKinnon, the one person who believes in Craig. But until his wife is found he has nothing to offer her. Welcome to purgatory.
