A caregiver's guide
A Caregiver's Guide is a handbook for end of life care. It is provided at no cost to caregivers across Canada. The first guide was written and published here in Edmonton, and it did not take long for the rest of Canada to adopt this exceptional tool. It's success has exceeded our hopes in that it has been adopted by many countries around the world and has been translated into numerous other languages. Take a moment to watch the short YouTube video posted here describing the tremendous value of this guide.
