SASHA, the St. Albert Sturgeon Hospice Association, was established in 2013 with the goal “to support, educate and empower those who are affected by or caring for a person with a life-limiting illness in our community”. Our primary objective, at the outset, was to work with local leaders in government and health care to create a residential hospice space in St. Albert. We are thankful that this objective was reached in January 2016, with the opening of ten hospice beds in Foyer Lacombe. (See the St. Albert Gazette, dated May 06, 2017, for an article on SASHA!) Now that the objective of established hospice has been achieved, our attention is focused on providing support in our community. To that end, we organized our CONNECT Cafes, to be held the second Tuesday of the month. The purpose of these Cafes is to provide an opportunity for people in the end stages of life and their caregivers to come together in a relaxing environment to learn from experts, share stories, and obtain support. The speaker for November is Dr. Elisa Mori- Torres speaking about Palliative Care. She will answer the What, Why, When etc. with respect to the Palliative Care process. This event is open to all, featuring both a presentation and a question and answer session.
