Our guest speaker is Ivy Scobie – Executive Director at William Booth Special Care Home/Regina Wascana Grace Hospice.
 
“Serving Others”
Ivy is the Executive Director of The Salvation Army William Booth Special Care Home and The Regina Wascana Grace Hospice (RWGH), since 1997. Throughout her career she has worked in various healthcare settings in Alberta and Saskatchewan.

Her passion for palliative care first emerged in the LTC (long term care) setting,which later progressed to the creation of the Hospice (2005), in order to provide end of life care for the clients/patients still living in the community. 

She was instrumental in the initial vision of the Hospice and worked collaboratively developing community partnerships with the Health Region, Canadian Progress Club Regina Wascana, Regina Palliative Care Inc. and the Salvation Army. This vision became a reality in 2005. The Regina Wascana Grace Hospice is the first Hospice in Saskatchewan and one of the most cost effective models, resourced with a LTC facility in Canada.
