We offer in-house bereavement support to residents and their loved ones, as well as programs for individuals who may need extra support as they work through the loss of a loved one. One-on-one bereavement support is also available to individuals who request it.

Our Bereavement Support team offers one on one support to those experiencing a loss of a loved one and seeking help through their journey. This is open to our client’s family members as well as the community at large. Its purpose is to offer support within 1- 4 sessions and refer them onto support groups or professional counsellors as deemed appropriate.

Good Grief Support Group

Grief is a personal journey, but it doesn’t have to be traveled alone. The Good Grief Support Group at Red Deer Hospice offers a group setting for six to eight people to learn together, to receive and offer support, and to find success in coping with grief. Meetings are held once a week for two hours over an eight week period.

Who Should Attend

Whether you’ve recently experienced a loss or are still navigating the complexities of grief, this support group is open to anyone who has experienced the loss of a loved one.  You do not need to have a loved one who was a resident of Red Deer Hospice to attend.

What to Expect

Connection: Share your story and listen to others in a community that understands. Our group fosters a sense of belonging, reminding you that you are not alone with your grief.

Compassion: Our trained volunteer facilitators and fellow group members offer empathetic support, helping you to express your emotions and find comfort in shared experiences.

Support: Receive guidance, resources and encouragement to help you cope with your loss as you journey towards healing.

Confidentiality: What is shared in the group stays in the group, ensuring a private and respectful environment for all participants.

Pre-registration for Good Grief is required.  Please contact our Bereavement Support Team at 403-309-4344 ext. 105 or by email to register or to find out more information.
