Comfort Care Bags

Our Mission Statement

“To establish and maintain expert end-of-life care and support for the community.”

What 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. Effort is put into tailoring each bag to the individual client’s needs.

The goal of these Comfort bags are to make the person and their loved ones time together as comfortable as possible with reassurance that the community and care team are there to support them through this difficult time.

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 their helpfulness as we are striving to make them best suited for their purpose.
