Education to strengthen, engage, and equip you.
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 offer resources to support professionals, community advocates, and individuals. Almost 2000 people a year benefit from our consultation, training, seminars, and accredited workshops.
Current Learning Opportunities
Our monthly education program, Dying To Know, is open to anyone interested in various topics related to death and dying. These interactive sessions help in preparing for end-of-life, offer strategies for staying resilient through challenging times, and help care partners become more confident in their roles.
The Parent Lunch and Learn Series, led by the Children’s Grief Centre, provides parents and caregivers with brief, concrete, direct and accessible information as they navigate new situations with their grief and their children’s grief.
Customized Sessions & Consultations
Designed to meet your group’s specific learning needs, we create customized sessions that are delivered at a time and in a location that best works for you. Our specialized team can also offer consultation on Palliative Care and adult and children’s grief.
