Community Services and Support
Diagnosis of a life-limiting illness can often cause patients and families to feel isolated and alone from their friends and communities. Upon receiving a diagnosis some patients feel a sense of hopelessness. We believe you are never alone: we are here for you. Your community resources are also here to assist you. In the Bow Valley we have a strong community and support organizations to help during this difficult time. This Resource Guide identifies community resources available in the Bow Valley and Calgary area that may benefit you and your family through this journey.
The Resource Guide has been compiled as a handy, one-stop reference for the many aspects of palliative and end-of-life care and supports.
The Guide covers topics from disease management, to loss and grief, to a variety of community and social supports. It also covers the difficult topic of death and the administration of dying.
The Guide was completed in 2019 and will be reviewed and updated annually. For resources not listed in the Guide or for further insight into supports across the community, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
