A Special Message from the President of NOVA West Island March 1, 2017 I am very disappointed to announce that effective March 31, 2017, NOVA West Island will discontinue our Foot Care Programme. The Board and Management did not make this decision lightly however the increase in our in-home Cancer and Palliative Care services have put an unsustainable demand on our nursing staff. Over the course of the past year, our cancer and palliative care client base has increased by 36% and the Board of Directors have recognized that we do not have the resources to competently and professionally operate both programmes. We understand that foot care is an extremely important service. However there are many other organizations and individuals in the field who are willing and very able to fill the void left by NOVA, and we will do everything possible to ensure a smooth transition to a new service provider. NOVA will of course, continue to meet the foot care needs of our own cancer and palliative care clients.
