The Hospice Calgary Team

The Team Behind the Mission

Hospice Calgary team members serve our clients and patients through our three centres of care: Children’s Grief Centre, Sage Centre, and Rosedale Hospice. Hospice Calgary employees and experienced volunteers are committed to our mission: to help families and individuals achieve support, hope and well-being through compassionate end-of-life and bereavement care.

We proudly live our values every day, with clients, employees, colleagues and our community.
