The 2017-2018 calendar includes a speaker series and movie nights.

Paul Bertram : Palliacco and Caregiving

Tuesday February 27th 2018, 1:30 p.m.

Speaker: Paul Bertram
Topic: Palliacco and Caregiving
Location : Holy Trinity Church (main building)

Paul has been a palliative care volunteer for over 20 years. Before retiring he was the marketing and business development manager at a multinational pharma company which involved him in research and education in palliative care.  But it was only after family members became ill with terminal cancer that Paul had firsthand experience of volunteer support services in his own home. This, combined with the training at Palliacco, helps him to help others who are living what he had to. Paul is also trained in grief support and has accompanied several individuals in the Laurentians through very difficult times after the loss of loved ones. Come to hear the story of Palliacco and ask questions about who they are, where they come from, what they do, and how their trained volunteers might be able to help you or someone you know whose life becomes challenged by chronic severe or life-altering illness.
