January 17 – Dying to Know – How to Talk to Children About Advanced Illness

When someone in the family has a life-threatening illness, the whole family is impacted by the many changes, the concerns and the unknown. Adults may choose to avoid talking to children about the illness to protect them from pain and distress. However, when children are not informed, they often feel excluded, alone, and isolated. Learn about the importance of talking with young people about the hard stuff.




Hospice Calgary offers counselling and support to those living with advanced illness, as well as their close family members and friends of all ages. Our seminars provide participants with the awareness, skills and knowledge.


Children’s Grief Centre supports children aged 19 and under as they adjust to the changes in their lives when someone close to them is living with an advanced illness or has died. Our seminars and workshops offer tools and strategies for those grieving or supporting others.


Founded over 30 years ago, Hospice Calgary was a driving force in establishing hospice care in Alberta. Today, Hospice Calgary’s continuum of care for those who are grieving and dying is unparalleled in Calgary & Area.
