About this Death Cafe

AHPCA's stance is that feeling comfortable talking about mortality and death is important. Does your family know what type of medical care you want (or don't want) if you can't decide for yourself? Have you thought about it? If death isn't a taboo topic, it's easier to to have these conversations. Talking about death won't kill you.


Facilitator Hilda Leon, a registered psychologist, always feels inspired by people’s resilience and their ability to overcome distressing events in their life. She sees her clients become stronger and healthier individuals, finding strength and hope even during the most difficult times.


After introductions and ground rules, we plan to have a few "ice breaking" questions to spark discussion. Hilda will be observing and interjecting if required. We plan to have a short break after about 45 minutes.


We are looking forward to our first Death Cafe event held in Calgary’s beautiful new Central Library! We hope you can join us!

About Alberta Hospice Palliative Care Association

Host AHPCA promotes and supports comprehensive and quality hospice palliative care (HPC) for all Albertans. We raise public awareness of HPC by highlighting news and events on our social media, website and blog. We meet with government and make recommendations.


AHPCA helps Albertans access HPC in their communities with our searchable, comprehensive online Resource Directory.


AHPCA supports professionals, volunteers and caregivers who provide HPC. We run annual province-wide educational Roadshows. We facilitate educational scholarships and awards for volunteers and caregivers. Once a year we unite all the grassroots hospice groups to learn and network to strengthen Alberta's hospice palliative care community.


Facilitator Hilda Leon is a registered psychologist. She has a BSc in Psychology and a Master of Counselling from the University of Calgary. She has a focus on grief, anxiety, depression, trauma, addiction, attachment and relationship issues. Moreover, she is certified in trauma therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and couple therapy.
