Did you know that Friday, October 8th is National Children's Hospice Palliative Care Day? A common myth we see often is that palliative care is only for an older population, however #HPCForChildren is just as important.

Make sure you check out the free resources that Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association is offering to help spread awareness of quality palliative care for ALL ages.

October 8th marks Children's Hospice Palliative Care Day. To help honour the Children of Today we have created downloadable posters and social media graphics that outline the many of the inequities Children face when accessing pediatric hospice palliative care.

You are invited to engage with us and to use the hashtags #ChildrenOfToday and #HPCForChildren to draw the attention to
the importance of quality hospice palliative care for all ages, including children and their families.

Top five regrets of the dying

When nearing the end of life, people often look back on their lives and reflect on any regrets that they may have. In an article from The Guardian, a palliative care nurse shares her experience caring for patients, and the conversations about the most common regrets people have. These conversations are important and spark meaningful discussions. They also allow us to learn from the wisdom of others who are nearing the end of their lives. Check out the article below.

Today weโ€™re giving a big shout-out to Andy Lonie, Financial Advisor at Palladium Insurance, and new board member of The OutCare Foundation โ€“ a registered charity that focuses on raising funds for community-based palliative care in Eastern Ontario. Andy and his network funded an industrial steamer for Carefor Health & Community Services - Pembroke-Renfrew County's equipment loan cupboard. Big thanks to Andy for his contribution!
Earlier this month, we attended Black Tie Bingo, in support of The Eldercare Foundation of Ottawa and The OutCare Foundation, as the proud wine sponsor for the event. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening, dabbing in support of some great causes!
OMG - one more sleep so much to do, so little time but SO excited!
All set up and ready for hungry golfers, thanks to Hammond CC and the volunteers.
