The Palliative Care Society of the Bow Valley is here for you!

Diagnosis of a life-changing illness can leave you and your loved ones feeling isolated, lonely, and afraid. Together we find a balance between understanding your diagnosis, nurturing your courage in the face of challenge and change, embracing your new normal, and preparing you to continue to live life for a long as possible-on your own terms.


We believe you, your family, and all Bow Valley residents have the right to compassionate palliative care, whether at home, hospice, hospital, or wherever you choose. Every day we share the path with those impacted by a life-changing illness, loss, and grief.


The palliative care journey is different for everyone. We create pathways to care, ensuring no one is left behind.

COMPASS for the Caregiver

Our award-winning COMPASS for the Caregiver program helps caregivers balance their own well-being with the challenges of caregiving and is facilitated by someone who understands those challenges.

Compass for Caregiver

Changing the Dialogue - Elephant in the Room

At PCSBV, we actively encourage conversations about the diagnosis of a life-changing illness, the challenges of being a caregiver, dying and the impact of grief or loss.

We want to invite you into a conversation about the one thing we all truly have in common and how we might live our best lives when we are faced with the inevitable. We want to talk openly and freely, learning from cultures and beliefs where this is common practice. To talk about the 'big thing' in the room that lives larger for some than others is an important conversation. Join us in the discussion.
