Dying to Know – As the Last Chapter Approaches

October 15 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

FREE

Hospice Calgary’s monthly education program, Dying to Know, is open to anyone interested in the
variety of topics that we cover related to death and dying.

These interactive sessions provide information on preparing for end of life, offer
strategies for staying resilient through challenging times, and help care partners
become more confident in their roles. Participants have the opportunity to share and
network with others while learning about available resources.

The sessions are on the 3rd Tuesday of each month from 6 – 8 pm. They are free of
charge and feature expert speakers and professionals.

September 17 – Care Partners at Home

October 15 – As the Last Chapter Approaches

People remember the death of their family members or friends until their own last
breath. During this session, two of Hospice Calgary’s team members, Dr. Kim Finvers,
Medical Director, and Lisa Lysak, Registered Nurse at Rosedale Hospice, will help us
understand how a person’s body and mind changes as death approaches. They will
provide information on what to expect in the last days and the interventions used to
ease the experience. A new resource booklet produced by Hospice Calgary will be
available
