Event description

Description

Are you a care partner, a volunteer, or a friend providing support to someone at home? Would you like to feel more confident in giving hands on support for someone as they approach end of life, now or in the future? In this session, Grace Saunders, Care Coordinator & Educator with Home Instead Senior Care, and Shawna Maynard, Registered Nurse with Hospice Calgary, will share practical information about providing personal care in the home. Some of the topics include medication administration, positioning, back care, fall prevention, and available resources.

Dying to Know is a monthly Hospice Calgary education program open to anyone interested in topics related to death and dying.

All Dying to Know sessions are at Sage Centre (1245 70 Avenue SE) with free parking available in front of the building and across the street at Trail Appliances.

To register for our seminars, for current information on our education opportunities, and to access additional resources, visit our website: hospicecalgary.ca/education.

Hospice Calgary is a not-for-profit organization. Donations in support of this program help us build capacity in our communities, and can be made at the door or online here.
