The Salvation Army Agapé Hospice
http://www.agapehospice.ca/ Nestled in a peaceful garden setting in the heart of the community of Kensington in Calgary, The Salvation Army Agapé Hospice provides a peaceful, compassionate and caring environment where those afflicted with a terminal illness can fully live out their remaining days with respect and dignity. Agapé’s inter-disciplinary team is sensitive to the needs of the terminally ill and their families, ensuring unconditional love and support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
When home or hospital is no longer an option, Agapé provides a serene, loving and home-like environment for individuals to live out their final days and to die with peace and dignity. Our caregivers are experts in providing excellent individualized physical, spiritual, social and emotional care. This allows family members freedom to be fully present in their journey with their loved one. Agapé’s environment provides comfort, support and a safe place to grieve. Several comfortable lounges, gardens, and sitting areas provide space for peaceful respite and visiting. We want our residents to have as much quality of life as possible. Our residents are encouraged to continue enjoying their personal interests. We also provide painting in our Arts Program, musical entertainment, social interaction at High Tea and many other activities.
