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.
