Free Online Screening – April 16-17, 2021
CHPCA and Advance Care Planning in Canada, in partnership with Elevation Pictures, is offering a free screening of “The Father”.
There is a point in the relationship between a parent and a child, when the child becomes the caregiver and the parent becomes a dependent. It is at the heart of the story of "The Father". It's a beautifully-directed family drama that brings Oscar winners Anthony Hopkins and Olivia Coleman together in a heart-wrenching tale of what happens when a relationship that has colored every waking day for a lifetime suddenly and irrevocably changes.
The BC Centre for Palliative Care has online resources to help you speak with your loved ones about your future care wishes, and to complete your Advance Care Planning documentation.
Speak Up Canada has a great resource for all Canadians to create they Advance Care Plan online!
HealthLink BC has a collection of resources to help you through your Advance Care Planning.
They also have information available in Chinese, Farsi, French, Korean, Punjabi, Spanish, and Vietnamese.
