Harry started as a family caregiving supporting his parents and grandfather to live as fully as possible at home until they died. He promised them he would dedicate part of his life to ensuring that other family members did not have to learn everything by luck or through mistakes. He is a founder of the Community Hospice Association of Ontario (now Hospice Palliative Care Ontario), the Canadian Palliative Care Association (now the Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Assocation), and has helped professionals and hospice care organizations.
He was also the co-founder of navCare, a group of organizations that decided they were tired of not have the resources necessary to help their patients/clients navigate healthcare and other systems. Click the "NAVCARE RESOURCES" button below.
