Dying to Know – Spirituality and Ritual at End-of-Life

May 21, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Hospice Calgary has a new monthly education program: Dying to Know. The program is open to anyone interested in the variety of topics that we will be covering related to death and dying.

These interactive sessions will provide information on preparing for end of life, offer strategies for staying resilient through challenging times, and help care partners to become more confident in their role. Participants will 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 p.m. They are free of charge and will always feature expert speakers and professionals.

All Dying to Know sessions are at Sage Centre (1245 70 Ave SE) with free parking available in front of the building and across the street at Trail Appliances. To register for our seminars, visit hospicecalgary.ca, email info@hospicecalgary.ca or call 403 263 4525
