What is a Compassionate Community?
BC Centre for Palliative Care has adopted and adapted the concept of the global Compassionate Communities movement. This guides our efforts in helping communities take an active role in connecting patients, families, and caregivers to physical, emotional, social, and spiritual supports.
We can help your community organization build a compassionate, supportive network for people affected by serious illness, end of life, caregiving, and grieving.
The Compassionate Community Toolkit was developed with input from compassionate communities across British Columbia.
