Motivations and Realities of Compassionate Care Companies in Changing Times: Exploring the Evolution of Compassionate Care Companies
CHPCA is proud to be partnered with a carer-friendly initiative being led by Dr. Allison Williams from McMaster University. Dr. Williams’ project is focused on growing the number of carer-friendly workplaces across Canada and throughout the world through mobilizing a range of tools to assist organizations in adopting carer-friendly practices for their carer-workers.
Without effective workplace supports, employees, who must balance work and care responsibilities (carer-workers, sometimes called carer-employees), are more likely to experience reduced performance and increased absenteeism, with some even deciding to retire early or quit their jobs. From an employer’s perspective, implementing effective carer-inclusive workplace practices will ensure carer-employees are both supported and productive. Further, such carer supportive policies minimize turn-around and maximize retention of employees, particularly those who are older than 45 and often the most experienced workforce.
One of the outcomes of this partnership is a two-part webinar series that highlights the progressive work of CHPCA’s Canadian Compassionate Companies (CCC) in supporting carers within their organizations.
The first webinar entitled “Motivations and Realities of Compassionate Care Companies in Changing Times: Exploring the Evolution of Compassionate Care Companies”, will explore the experiences of three Compassionate Care Companies. This webinar will present findings from ongoing research addressing motivations for and experience of being a CCC, as well as provide the opportunity to learn from a panel of three CCC representatives about how they have been able to pivot to best meet the needs of their carer-employees during the COVID-19 pandemic. The panellists will also answer questions related to ways in which care-workers have been supported in the workplace.

The CHPCA is the national voice for Hospice Palliative Care in Canada. Advancing and advocating for quality end-of-life/hospice palliative care in Canada, its work includes public policy, public education and awareness. Established in 1991, its volunteer Board of Directors is composed of hospice palliative care workers and volunteers from Canadian provinces and territories as well as members-at-large.
The Canadian Palliative Care Association (CPCA) was formally established as a national charitable organization in November 1991 and opened the first office in Ottawa in February 1994. The association’s first newsletter “AVISO” was published in both official languages in June, 1992.
Today, the Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association is the national voice for hospice palliative care in Canada. It is a national charitable non-profit association whose mission is to provide leadership in hospice palliative care in Canada. We strive to achieve this mission by supporting research, promoting education and training, improving public awareness of hospice palliative care, and by advocating for increased programs and services. CHPCA works in close partnership with other national organizations and will continue to move forward with the goal of ensuring that all Canadians, regardless of where they may live, have equal access to quality hospice palliative care for themselves and their family.
L’Association canadienne de soins palliatifs (ACSP) a été officiellement établie en tant qu’organisme national de bienfaisance en novembre 1991, et a ouvert ses premiers bureaux à Ottawa en février 1994. Le premier numéro d’AVISO, le bulletin de l’Association, a été publié dans les deux langues officielles en juin 1992. En espagnol, « aviso » signifie « avis » ou « intelligence », et en latin, « avis » signifie « oiseau », des notions qui s’agencent joliment à l’emblème de l’ACSP.
Aujourd’hui, l’ACSP est la voix nationale du secteur des soins palliatifs au Canada. Il s’agit d’un organisme national de bienfaisance sans but lucratif dont la mission est de fournir son leadership dans le domaine des soins palliatifs partout au pays. L’ACSP travaille à réaliser sa mission en appuyant la recherche, en faisant la promotion de l’éducation et de la formation, en sensibilisant la population aux soins palliatifs, et en militant pour l’accroissement des programmes et services. L’ACSP travaille en étroite collaboration avec d’autres organismes nationaux, et continue de progresser dans le but de garantir à tous les Canadiens, où qu’ils vivent, un accès équitable à des soins palliatifs de grande qualité, pour eux-mêmes et leur famille.
After 20 years of working on the Palliative Response team at Victoria Hospice, I am writing to let you know about my new book. It is a collection of stories intended to inspire discussions about the work, through artful storytelling, modeling a relational way of being in the face of death. It gives an authentic, raw and honest view of what it is like to enter into conversation with the dying and their social networks. It will be of particular interest to those who are involved in supporting patients and families through illness, loss and death.
If you would like to listen to my interview on CBC here is the link:

In this shared Canadian Virtual Hospice post she is quoted as saying: “In all my years of looking after people at the very end of their lives, I met many people and families who regretted that they had not planned ahead or thought through their options. Of the people I met who had planned ahead, no-one regretted it.”
