Education through Hospice Calgary
For over 30 years, Hospice Calgary has served Calgary and Area, offering palliative and hospice care, support during advanced illness, and grief counselling to patients and clients. Using our experiences and expertise, our educators offer learning opportunities designed to strengthen, engage, and equip our community. They share practical tools and provide resources to support professionals, community advocates, and individuals. Almost 2000 people a year benefit from our consultation, training, seminars, and accredited workshops.
Education and resourcing for professionals builds capacity in the community to best support individuals and families who are grieving after the death of someone in their lives or as they face a life-threatening illness in their family.
Education can support individuals and families grieving a death or diagnosis of an advanced illness by offering guidance on coping mechanisms and emotional healing while providing practical resources and information about the grieving process.
