Everyone has a part to play.
Pallium’s tools and resources help community champions create more supportive environments in their communities for patients, caregivers and their families experiencing serious illness, dying, and grieving.
What We Do
Pallium equips health care organizations, health care professionals, and community members with the knowledge and tools to provide better palliative care to patients with life-limiting illnesses and their families. Pallium provides resources to community members to help create a wrap-around effect to better support people in the community who may be experiencing serious illness, caregiving, death, or grieving.

Did You Know?
Family caregivers provide more than 80% of care needed by patients with serious illness or long-term conditions.
With Canada’s aging population, the number of caregivers and the support needed from those caregivers is expected to increase.
Compassionate Communities widen the circle of caring and provide much-needed support to patients facing serious illness and death, as well as their caregivers and loved ones.
Learn from the stories of fellow community champions who have used the Compassionate Community Startup Toolkit to increase the quality of life of people with life-limiting illnesses and their caregivers.
