Last year, Hospice Calgary staff brought several new and exciting initiatives to fruition. One project was the creation of an easy to read and informative booklet for family caregivers that our previous Medical Director, Laurie Lemieux, started as a work from her heart. Life’s Last Chapter is a purse size, 16-page, booklet that contains practical information on the changes that occur in a person’s body and mind as death approaches.
The project grew to be a shared vision between Rosedale staff and the Community Hospice Services team, with professionals from both sites contributing their expertise. Finally, in spring of 2019 after preliminary reviews from a variety of community members, this long envisioned resource was complete. We are proud to have this resource on hand, offering solace and shared wisdom for our clients and community members.
