Latest Updates

Surprise, You’re Going To Be A Caregiver

Becoming a caregiver can happen gradually without you even noticing it – you start calling more often, you cover more of the chores at home, you pick up their prescriptions – or it can happen quite quickly – they are given a diagnosis with a poor prognosis or they take a damaging fall, requiring urgent treatment and full-time care. In this week's Changing Lives Podcast we offer up some suggestions to help you adjust to being a caregiver.

Four Facets of End of Life Care

People who are dying need care in four areas—physical and practical help, mental support, help for emotional needs, and processing spiritual issues. Quality hospice palliative care should address the needs of all four areas. Listen to this week's podcast to find out how to give care in each of these four areas.

Tips for Caregivers

According to Statistics Canada, in 2018 an estimated 25 percent of the population provided some form of long-term caregiving to a loved one. As those with illness face multiple losses and grief, and adjustments to a different life routine, so do caregivers. Caregivers may face losses such as the loss of a job, broken or challenging relationships, and having to learn to adjust to new caregiving routines and skills. Caregiving is undoubtedly one of the most rewarding, yet demanding, jobs a person will ever have. Listen to this week's podcast for some tips to help ease the burden of caregiving.

Healthy Aging and Advance Care Planning

September is Healthy Aging Month. Healthy Aging Month was created to empower people over the age of 45 to take charge of their lives, their health, and their passions. This is not just about eating right and getting exercise. It is also about planning ahead. This includes planning for your end of life care. It can be hard to do, but creating an Advance Care Plan could save you and your loved one’s stress and time should you develop a palliative illness or become unexpectedly incapacitated. Learn more about healthy aging and advance care planning in this week's podast.
