Tim is an experienced counsellor, community treatment worker, hands-on palliative and personal care provider, care-plan manager and Reiki practitioner. Tim Hiebert’s training and experience stem from the University of Manitoba (Applied Counselling Diploma), Douglas College (End-of-life Doula Certificate), Boundary Trails Health Centre (Compassionate Care and Palliative Care Training Certificate), Alzheimer's Society of Toronto (Dementia Care Practitioners Certificate) (U-First Dementia Sensitive Care Program), 10 years of front-line work with various vulnerable populations and ongoing, active volunteerism. Tim was inspired to create Right to Hope following a multi-year journey as his grandfather's primary caregiver. Together, with love and creativity, they navigated complex situations related to illness, ageing, dementia, loss of mobility and preparing for death at home. At no point did they run out of ways to keep hope alive, however changing and fleeting that hope may have been. Tim was at his Granpa's side when he died peacefully in his own bed, in his own home, free of pain and fear. Tim's job was completed, his greatest teacher was laid to rest and together with his brilliant partner Karina they began the work of supporting others.
