A compassionate city is a community that recognizes that all natural cycles of sickness and health, birth and death, and love and loss occur every day within the orbits of its institutions and regular activities. Its residents recognize that care for one another at times of crisis and loss is not simply a task solely for health and social services but is everyone’s responsibility.
We invite community minded individuals and groups to connect with us to help us build a compassionate community. It is time to RETHINK how WE do things: How we look after, and connect with, each other today and every day because building a community that cares for each other makes us happier, keeps us healthy and makes us live longer. Loneliness and isolation are toxic especially if you are living with a serious illness, caring for someone or grieving for someone.
We look forward to what is yet to come for our community!
