Living Every Season Program

Living Every Season Program

Sunny days. Rainy days. We’ll be there.

A support program for Albertans with life-limiting illness.

The Living Every Season program provides safe, confidential support in a social setting designed for adults who are living with a life-limiting illness.

The regular, interactive sessions of the Living Every Season program create an empathetic community for participants to connect with others, learn from speakers and continue to live a good life while also living with a terminal diagnosis.

A life-limiting diagnosis can bring feelings of fear and isolation. The Living Every Season program is here to help.
