The Thriving Caregiver Workshop with Bill Harder from the Palliative Care Society of the Bow Valley.

Workshop Overview

As a caregiver… Have you ever felt at your wits end?
Have you ever thought that you need to do it all by yourself?
Family and professional caregivers fill some of the most crucial roles in our community providing essential care to vulnerable people.
Join the PCSBV in partnership with the Banff Public Library to understand and develop tools for keeping a caregiver’s tank topped up.

From the facilitator, Bill Harder: Palliative & Grief Support Navigator

“I have learned much about living from my work with those who are dying and from those who sorrow. It is in this soil that I have deepened my own roots and grown as a person. In discovering the transformative power of grief, I have come to understand loss as a quintessential experience that every human being will come to know. In hospice end-of-life care we journey with the dying and grieving as co-mentors, explorers of beginnings and endings. Our work is about dying well and bearing witness to the sorrow of those who grieve.”
