are Comfort Care Bags?
Grande Prairie Palliative Care Society recognizes that Comfort Care is an essential part of medical care at the end of life. It is care that helps or soothes a person who is dying. The goal is to prevent or relieve suffering as much as possible while respecting the dying person’s wishes.
Our Society collects donations from local organizations and businesses to make Comfort Care Bags for the person and their loved ones during this end-of-life journey.
