NOVA West Island Nurses take part in Palliative Care Nursing Conference

June 07, 2019

We are very proud of our nurses who made a recent presentation to the Palliative Care Institute at the Sarto- Desnoyers Community Centre. The day-long nursing conference examined ’Using a Palliative Approach in Supportive and End of Life Care”. Maxine Lybert, RN, BScN, CHPCN (C) CT and Leslie Mitchell, N, BScN, CHPCN (C), spoke to the participants about "End of Life Care in Various Settings: Providing Care and Support for the Clients and Their Loved Ones." They spoke about the importance of making the final days of a person's life as comfortable as possible while providing support to their family, whether the person is at home, in a hospital or in another setting. 

Annual General Meeting 2019

June 03, 2019

We recently held our Annual General Meeting outlining the accomplishments of the past year. We contributed to the welfare of more than 753 vulnerable individuals who received services through one or more of our programs. Thanks to the continued financial support of individuals, foundations, corporations, municipalities, community groups and organizations as well as new, annual and third party fundraisers, NOVA West Island continues to bridge gaps in the public health care system by offering a variety of programs and services at low or no cost. The Thrift Shops’ substantial contribution to our organization as well as the Annual Golf Tournament, Art Show, Yoga, Tree of Life, and Breakfast are examples of such fundraisers. We also count on dedicated staff and long-time volunteers like Anne Myles who has been with our Board since 2006! She has decided to step down and was made an Honorary Life Member of Nova West Island. Thank you Anne!

31st EDITION OF ART EXPO A GREAT SUCCESS!

The Lakeshore Association of Artists (LAA) held another very successful Spring Exhibition at the end of April. With over 50 artists taking part, the event raised almost $8,000! NOVA is the very grateful recipient of 1/3 of the sales of artwork as well as all proceeds of raffle tickets. We'd like to thank Charmian Gibson Silver and Suzanne Bélair for generously donating their paintings towards the raffle as well as the donor of the two beautiful quilts. We are so pleased to be a continuing partner of LAA and have the support of the community. 

Thank you to our volunteers!

It was with great pride that NOVA West Island staff welcomed more than 50 volunteers to our annual recognition event last April 8th during this year’s Volunteer Week. The afternoon included a delicious snack, a vibrant game, door prizes and surprises while highlighting those who celebrated their 5 to 30 years of service to NOVA West Island’s clients. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts! NOVA West Island would not exist without the generosity, time and expertise of over 255 volunteers who help us respond to health needs in our community.

4th Edition of NOVA Tree of Life

December 01, 2018

More than 120 people gathered in front of NOVA West Island's office for the 4th edition of the NOVA Tree of Life Ceremony. It involves buying a white light "in memory of" or a blue light "in honour of" a loved one. These lights are then placed on a Christmas tree. The tree is illuminated following a minute of silence. The crowd enjoyed singing Christmas carols played by the musical group; Roxfield Point as well as listening to a heartfelt rendition of "Hallellujah," sung by Medha Srinivasan; a NOVA Carousel Camp volunteer. A draw was held for gift baskets graciously donated by local businesses and individuals followed by delicious chili, soup and hot chocolate. The event raised over $2,500. A big thank you to everyone who organized and supported this event!
