The goal of NavCare is to improve the quality of life of older rural persons with advanced chronic illness via:
  • Navigation services
  • Community partnerships
  • Coordinated access to services and resources
  • Promotion of active engagement of older adults. 

Utilizing trained volunteers, the outcome of NavCare is that navigation services provide individuals with support, education and connection to resources in the community to help improve their quality of life and remain in their communities.

Grief and Loss of an Animal Companion

Hospice is pleased to share news of the following grief support workshop.
Please note that this is not a Hospice-hosted program.

When a companion animal’s life ends, it is very understandable and normal for us to grieve and suffer a unique bereavement.  Often, we feel alone and isolated as grieving a beloved companion animal is not always understood by others or accepted in our society.  We want you to know that you are not alone and that grieving your companion animal is normal.

If your heart is heavy with grief, either from a recent, past or future loss, please join Facilitator Lyndell Drever for the day where you will:
  • Share stories and honor our beloved companion animal
  • Learn about grief, how it affects us and ways of coping with our grief
  • Connect with others who are on a grief journey and know that we are not alone

January 20, 2019. 10am-3pm Camrose Veterinary Hospital

To register, or for more information, please contact Lyndell Drever @ 780-608-6337or lyndell@dreverag.com
Lunch and snacks are provided.
