Prairie Rose Hospice Palliative Care Society will be presenting a non-denominational memorial service in memory of the loss of your loved one(s) who passed away between July 1, 2019 and June 30, 2020. The names of the honorees were copied from the Obituaries published in the Brooks Bulletin.
Please join us in lighting a candle at home in honor of the loss of the loved ones in our community and facilities. Watch the full service here:
PRHPCS has been a society since 2016 in Brooks and Area. We are very pleased to see our growth within our communities. Your support has brought comfort to our hospice palliative care patients.
PRHPCS is conducting a community survey to gather information on Hospice and Palliative care needs in Brooks and Area. We would like to hear from as many as possible on hospice and palliative care bouquets, needs, and concerns. What works and what does not work.
Each Day Matters
We believe that lives matter, right up until their very last days. Through education, awareness, fundraising, and providing for practical needs, such as in-home care beds, Prairie Rose Hospice Palliative Care Society promotes and supports local palliative care efforts.
PRHPCS has a survey on our website and FB page – we would appreciate if you could take the time to fill this short survey out. It will help us with our hospice palliative care planning in the upcoming year.
This survey starts Sept. 1st to the end of October on our webpage and Facebook page.
The PRHPCS was graciously presented with a donation of $1000 on behalf of the Smith Group Holdings Family barbecue. To accept this generous donation was Marg Laux and Linda Currie of PRHPCS and Cole Smith and Jody Wester of Smith Group Holdings.
PRHPCS would like to express there extreme gratitude for the Smith Group Holdings Support.
In May of this year, we were able to meet with many of our volunteers and brainstorm about our communities’ needs. One of the needs identified was a place to meet and discuss the challenges of grieving and healing following a loss.
We are offering an
Evening Bereavement Group, an opportunity to share thoughts and feelings and
needs with others traveling a similar path.
Discussions can vary from the process of dying, the physical changes, emotional, the “hole in your life”, losses prior to death, paperwork just to mention a few. Subjects can, and will, vary to meet the needs of everyone.
Bereavement is a journey, one as unique as every
person. There is no right or wrong way, no specific start or end time.
Everyone is welcome to join the group whether you are
coming from a recent, a past, or an evolving loss event in your life. This is an opportunity to meet with a facilitator for an informal discussion
with others traveling a similar path.
PRHPCS WELCOMES YOU TO OUR EVENING BEREAVEMENT GROUP
Recently, the Brooks Lions Club donated $1,000.00 to Prairie Rose Hospice Palliative Care Society.

PRHPCS appreciates Brooks Lions Club support of hospice palliative care in Brooks and Area.
PRHPCS was thrilled that, in June, the Duchess School Youth Philanthropy Class included PRHPCS in their list of 4 community programs they could be interested in supporting. The class funding comes from CFSEA – Community foundation of South-eastern Alberta.
The Duchess School students – Kayleigh, Madison, Payton, Shelby & Syndey with Teacher Jill Goodheart met with 3 members from PRHPCS to hear our mandate, history, the services we provide and our organizations greatest need.
After hearing from the 4 groups, students selected 2 groups, one being PRHPCS, because it isn’t well know and their services are very important. “Services are available to people before and after passing and they are all volunteers,’ said one of the students.
Presentation took the form of a luncheon with recipients and the Duchess and Brooks Philanthropy Classes with 2 of our members present to accept their donation.
It is exciting to see CFSEA work with the school students to allow them to learn of community programs and their needs plus make the difficult decision of which group/s to pick for the monies available. Thanks to CFSEA as well.
