In this first of two sessions with Janine Violini and Jamie Whittaker, we will discuss tips to complete the paperwork we need before death occurs. This includes Personal Directive, Power of Attorney and the types of Wills one might consider. These topics are part of their Crows in a Row program designed to help achieve an end-of-life plan so that legacy is defined, wishes are honoured, and loved ones are taken care of.
Most Canadians want to die in their home, wherever that may be. Informing ourselves of the available options can go a long way towards making plans. Erin Forsyth, Director of Clinical Care at Hospice Calgary’s residential hospice Rosedale, will share information about Hospice and Palliative Care as well as how to access services and resources.
Hike for Hospice Calgary is part of a national event that annually kicks off National Hospice Palliative Care Week in Canada. The annual May fundraiser is a fun, family and fur-friendly event open to the public.
Sage Soiree, held annual in November, is an event to recognize our supporters. Guests enjoy a dinner and presentation from a keynote speaker.
