Community Awareness & Education
We promote awareness of the concept of hospice palliative care through workshops, guest speakers, and more. We also provide information and resources to the public, caregivers, and the medical community.
Excellent educational material is also available on our Facebook page – Prairie Rose Hospice Palliative Care Society.
Biannual Memorial Service
Along with help from the Newell Christian Community NCC, we provide a public service for all those in the community who have lost a loved one. The service is held on the 3rd Sunday in March and September 2:00 in the Long Term Care Solarium at Brooks Health Centre – south entrance. Everyone Welcome!
In-Home Bed Program
This popular program supplies five hospital beds and bedside tables free of charge to those palliative care patients who choose to have care at home.
Palliative Care Rooms
There are three palliative care rooms in the Brooks Health Centre and one hospital bed in Bassano Hospital. We provide small refrigerators, kettles, microwaves, blenders, televisions and recliner chairs for family use.
Trees of Hope Campaign
This traditional holiday campaign lights public trees with donations made either as a Christmas greeting or in memory of a loved one.
