The name Hospice Calgary may be somewhat misleading. Although Hospice is an important element of their services, Hospice Calgary offers the most extensive programs for individuals needing counselling, group programs and other support while facing advanced illness or loss of any kind.
Their Promise: “Wherever you access our services, we promise to journey with you, through end-of-life and grief, for as long as you need us. We promise to have the difficult conversations about death, dying and grief, hearing your unique story and responding with compassion.”
