Compassionate Community Care (CCC) is a registered charity comprised of health care professionals and volunteers who provide support to clients and their families during times of illness and crisis. We aim to provide a complete circle of care that recognizes and respects the physical, social, psychological and spiritual needs of those involved.
We at CCC believe that all human life has equal dignity, and that every person deserves to be treated with respect and compassion while receiving the care they need and deserve. Whether you are facing a chronic condition, disability or end-of-life situation, we are here to help.
The core activities of Compassionate Community Care are:
To provide non-medical support for persons who are vulnerable to depression, isolation, loneliness, pain and death due to age, terminal illness, disability or other conditions (“vulnerable persons”).
To train professionals and volunteers to provide non-medical support to these persons.
To educate both health care professionals and the public about end-of-life issues as well as other issues relevant to the care and protection of vulnerable persons. This will be done through courses, seminars, conferences and meetings and by collecting and disseminating information.
