It's been a wonderful week promoting awareness of hospice and palliative care. The key is to be informed and to ask questions. Don't assume that the people involved in your care know what you want. Talk about your needs and beliefs. Advocate for those you love. Plan for the future and let those who love you know about those plans.

Hospice and Palliative Care week - Day 5

What is should Palliative Care look like?

"Palliative care should be person- and familyFootnote1-centred. This refers to an approach to care that places the person receiving care, and their family, at the centre of decision making. It places their values and wishes at the forefront of treatment considerations. In person- and family-centred care, the voices of people living with life-limiting illness and their families are solicited and respected"

The Father Registration - Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association

Join the CHPCA on Thursday, May 6 as we all celebrate National Hospice Palliative Care Week and Shine a light on the people and issues that matter the most!

CHPCA in partnership with Elevation Pictures is pleased to offer a free screening of “The Father”.

About "The Father"
There is a point in the relationship between a parent and a child, when the child becomes the caregiver and the parent becomes a dependent. It is at the heart of the story of "The Father". It's a beautifully-directed family drama that brings Oscar winners Anthony Hopkins and Olivia Coleman together in a heart-wrenching tale of what happens when a relationship that has coloured every waking day for a lifetime suddenly and irrevocably changes.

“It all started with Arlene (Kolosky)’s dream, a lady in our community who was facing the end of life and had great services within her home. She was always wondering what happens to all those individuals that don’t have those resources to be able to have that end-of-life journey at their home,” Sereda explained.

Hi Everyone my name is Kate Davis and I have recently started a podcast called "So now you are dying, what are you doing to live?” which takes an intimate look at the two things that are most feared and stigmatized in our society, terminal illness and death and the ways people are experiencing and embracing them. Terminal illness and death are kept so separate from our day-to-day lives and yet it is something we are all going to face… our own mortality. This podcast hopes to shed some light on the experience from people who are going through it and to enlighten, share and help educate a broad audience. I am hoping to find guests for the show. I have taped some and it's a great legacy for the families as well. If you know of anyone who might be interested in participating and sharing their story please DM me and I can send more information. Warmest, Kate
Just finished my course on death doula and received my certificate today. I would be willing to volunteer in helping to set up advanced care directives, planning a vigil and respite care. I can be contacted by messenger, email at [email protected], or text me at +13065969710.
I have been thinking of all of you since I left Saskatchewan very early Saturday morning. Thank you so very much for your warm welcome to your conference and for receiving my words so openly. I have been touched by the stories many of you shared with me and will always remember my (brief) time in Regina as one of positivity, kindness and generosity. I wish all of you tremendous inspiration as you do this sacred, oftentimes tough, work. If I can ever be of any assistance, do not hesitate to reach out. www.whatiwouldtellyou.com www.juliekeon.com https://www.facebook.com/What-I-Would-Tell-You-236841003020548/?ref=bookmarks
