A compassionate Ottawa supports and empowers individuals, their families and their communities throughout life to live well and to die and grieve well.

We are pleased to announce that we have received a grant from the Canadian Frailty Network to create three new community education resources to raise awareness of end of life issues and prompt citizens to be better prepared for giving and receiving help in later life.

The three resources are:

  • Digital stories (3 to 5 minute videos) made by people who are giving or getting help in later life.
  • A Book Chat format where small groups read the book “Talking About Death Won’t Kill You” by Kathy Kortes-Miller and afterwards discuss the book.
  • A video about the “Compassionate Ottawa Story” to describe the experience of our community-based volunteer initiative.

The resources will be evaluated and User Guides will be created for others to use.

The project gets underway in February 2020 and will be completed over the next 12 to 18 months.  Watch our website and social media for updates on the progress of the project.
