Nominate a Deserving Unpaid or Informal Caregiver

Dr. Donna Wilson Caregiver Award

Nominations are open for the Dr. Donna Wilson Caregiver Award, designed to recognize the vital importance of work provided by informal palliative caregivers across Alberta.

This annual award of $500 recognizes the contribution of unpaid caregivers who work to maintain the independence and dignity of the person they help, through their compassion and perseverance.

Walter Burchnall generously funded this endeavour in 2017. The award recognizes AHPCA board member Dr. Donna Wilson for her continued years of work in hospice, palliative and end-of-life care, and for the support she provided to Walter Burchnall during his own health crisis.
