Our Living Through Loss monthly drop-in group is for bereaved adults looking for an understanding place to share their experiences with grief. Access to this program is through Rosedale Hospice, our Community Hospice counselling services, and our Companion Program.
Family members that have connected with us through Rosedale Hospice or Living with Cancer Program are able to receive telephone follow-up through our Volunteer Bereavement Support Program.
The Companion Program offers a family-centred and community-based approach with the goal of improving quality of life for those impacted by any advanced illness. Volunteers are carefully matched with clients to provide ongoing, regular support that includes respite, companionship, resource sharing, and other practical support. The program aims to help reduce stress and feelings of isolation in patients, caregivers, and their families and promote an active role in living life to the fullest during illness.
