Up and Coming Events & Programs 2019-2020


Walking Through Grief and Loss Support Walk

'Walking in nature is therapy for the body and soul" - Unknown

We will continue our Support Walks into the winter months as a drop-in group that will meet at Spraylakes Sawmill Family Sports Centre (Main Doors) every Tuesday. We meet at 10 am and walk outside if weather premits with the options of walking inside. We start walk at 10:00 am. We share an enjoyable 45-minute walk with the option of continuing the conversation and socializing at a local coffee shop afterwards.

Please note: This is NOT intended to be therapeutic group but to provide participants with an opportunity to experience the beauty of nature (or the companionship at Spraylakes indoors) and walk alongside others who are on a similar journey.

Our walks are free, with drop-in fees at Spraylakes covered by the Cochrane and Area Hospice Society.

Any questions about this group please email:

2020 Alberta Hospice Palliative Care Association Roadshow

WHAT is the Roadshow?

It’s a series of full-day educational workshops developed in response to an identified need for palliative care training and development throughout rural Alberta.

The benefits of the AHPCA Roadshow include community building and strengthening through networking, and increased knowledge and skills about issues related to hospice palliative care and other associated fields.

WHO attends the Roadshow?

The AHPCA Roadshow participants include multi-agency professionals, such as nurses, social workers, teachers, complementary therapists, and health care administrators. You’ll also find volunteers, caregivers, patients, families, and interested community members in the Roadshow audiences. Over 3,000 Albertans have attended the AHPCA Roadshow in the past 9 years.

We are excited to annouce that the Cochrane and Area Hospice Society in collaboration with AHPCA is planning a Roadshow event in the Town of Cochrane May 8, 2020! Stay tuned for details early next year!
