We ask that you read the following statement to the individual you're referring:
Bereavement boxes support individuals following the loss of a loved one by providing role specific, physical grief resources, and coping strategies. It can be a tangible way for someone to have access to resources that they use in their own time.
Compassionate conversations support individuals following the loss of a loved one by offering connection and conversation with a trained bereavement volunteer. This is not a counselling service, but an opportunity to invite supportive and compassionate conversation into the grief journey.
Volunteers will offer up to one hour of conversation per month, and up to 12 months following the loss of a loved one.
Expressive Arts is a group based creative program that provides the opportunity for participants to share alongside others while participating in interactive programming, in a safe and supportive environment. We recommend participants be at least 3 months from the date of their loss before attending group. Our Expressive Arts program is offered quarterly.
Grief Group is an opportunity for support among others who have similarly experienced a loss. It allows for conversation, compassion, and connection. We recommend participants be at least 3 months from the date of their loss before attending group.
Please note - Anyone new to grief group will be contacted by our Registered Social Worker for a brief assessment to determine which group is the best fit for their needs.
Grief counselling with a Registered Social Worker is available to those who may benefit from more personalized supports in their grief experience. These short-term offerings are one hour long and can range from 1-3 sessions. Our social work team will call for a brief assessment prior to booking the first appointment.
Nav-CARE is a non-medical, volunteer companioning program that supports our adult community members who have a palliative diagnosis. Nav-CARE clients will be matched with an experienced palliative volunteer who will visit regularly, help to identify and navigate community resources, and nurture a safe and compassionate connection. Nav-CARE volunteers offer support that encourages independence and an improved quality of life.
