Comfort Care Bags

 Grande Prairie Palliative Care Society recognizes that “Comfort Care” is an essential part of medical care when we are not feeling well, especially so at the end of life. The goal is to prevent or relieve suffering as much as possible while respecting the dying person’s wishes.

Community members, local organizations and businesses fill our Comfort Care Bags with love to show our clients and families of Prairie Lakes Hospice that we are thinking of them during this difficult time in their lives. The contents of each bag are for the person who is currently receiving comfort care support, their loved ones and friends. 

We appreciate feedback, suggestions, and thoughts from clients, families, friends, staff, and caregivers about our bags, their contents and helpfulness as we are striving to make them best suited for their purpose.
