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
Are you a care partner, a volunteer, or a friend providing support to someone
at home? Would you like to feel more confident in giving hands on support for
someone as they approach end of life, now or in the future? In this session, Grace
Saunders, Care Coordinator & Educator with Home Instead Senior Care, and Shawna
Maynard, Registered Nurse with Hospice Calgary, will share practical information
about providing personal care in the home. Some of the topics include medication
administration, positioning, back care, fall prevention, and available resources.
