What We Do

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.

Prairie Rose Hospice Palliative Care

Biannual 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 usually held on the 3rd Sunday in March and September. Everyone Welcome! Go to Events for more information.

In-Home Bed Program

This popular program supplies four hospital beds and bedside tables free of charge to those palliative care patients who choose to have care at home. Contact the AHS PCR Nurse.

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 our Trees of Hope at the Brooks Health Centre with donations made either as a Christmas greeting or In Memory of a loved one. Tree lighting takes place the evening of the 3rd Monday in November.

Comfort Bags

With community support we are making up comfort bags for hospice palliative care clients. A friend or family member can fill out a form to request a comfort bag to be delivered to their friend or loved one. Brooks Lutheran Quilt Ladies have donated lap quilts for our bags. Merle Zatylny has supplied the bags. We have included important information for the end of life journey of your loved one.

Forms are available at the nurses unit or through the AHS Palliative Care Resource (PCR) Nurse.


PRHPCS takes part in The Medicine Hat Casino and holds quilt raffles each year. There will be a fall quilt raffle with quilts once again created and donated by Marian Shantz, Duchess, AB.
