Palliative / End of Life Care (PEOLC)

Hospice - Information for the Public

Calgary Zone

Hospices are available to individuals living in the Calgary area who are in their last days to weeks of life and whose care needs can no longer be met at home.

Specialized teams of health care professionals and volunteers provide 24-hour care focused on quality of life for individuals and families while dying and through bereavement. The interdisciplinary team concentrates on easing the physical, emotional and spiritual suffering that often accompanies the end of life journey.

The Calgary Zone PEOLC program delivers residential hospice care in partnership with the contracted providers listed to the right. Referrals to hospice can only be made by a Palliative Home Care Case Manager or a Palliative Care Consultant. If you think hospice may be right for you or your loved one, talk to your physician or Home Care Case Manager about a Palliative Care Consult.
