Consider the conversation

Exploring Death Through Film

Film: Consider the Conversation
November 5th
Location: 5415-49 ave (Hospice Offices)
7:00-9:00 pm
Park on the south side, enter on the lower level. (ring the doorbell if the door is locked)

Join us for another film in our Exploring Death Through Film series.

Consider the Conversation: A Documentary on a Taboo Subject provides a 360-degree view on end-of-life care. It features the perspectives of three terminally ill patients in their 50’s and the professionals who typically care for these kinds of people – doctors, nurses, social workers and clergy – as well as several leading national experts. Consider the Conversation does not provide the viewer with any particular answer – it’s not a hospice film, for example, and it’s certainly not a film that advocates for physician assisted death. Instead, it provides something far more important than an answer – some of the questions we all need to think about and answer for ourselves.

As such, Consider the Conversation aligns beautifully with the concept of advance care planning which is all about the process of talking with patients about their end-of-life wishes, documenting them, and aligning care with those wishes when push comes to shove.

Lights to Remember

Christmas lights20171117 31873 15hc6z8
December may be a difficult month for those who are grieving. An empty chair at the table during family gatherings is a poignant reminder of loss, and may activate waves of grief.

As a ritual of support for those who mourn, Lights to Remember is an annual event proudly sponsored by the Hospice Society of Camrose and District.

Each year Hospice provides individuals an opportunity to remember and recognize loved-ones who have died.

This ceremony takes place at the Hospice office in the lower-level of the Mirror Lake Center in Camrose (5415-49 ave, south side).  We join together for an evening of caroling, readings, and a candle lighting ceremony, all gathered around a lovely fire (dress warm).

The event closes as we move indoors to the for refreshments, stories, and conversation.

You are welcome to sponsor a light on our Remembrance Tree  (in front of the Bill Fowler Information Center on 48th Ave) in memory of a loved one. Use our secure server to make your gift online.
