We promise to journey with you, through end-of-life and grief, for as long as you need us. We promise to have the difficult conversations about death, dying and grief, hearing your unique story and responding with compassion.
What We Offer
Child & Family Grief Counselling through the Children’s Grief Centre: We provide programs and services that guide grieving children, teens, and families as they face advanced illness and life after the death of someone close to them (including sudden or accidental deaths).
Support during Advanced Illness through Sage Centre Community Hospice Services: We offer individual and group support for those living with advanced illness.
End-of-Life Care through Rosedale Hospice: Located in the quiet NW neighbourhood of Rosedale, we provide 24-hour end-of-life care for adult cancer patients.
Education: We offer presentations and accredited workshops and can deliver them to groups and schools, customizing the content, location and format to the audience.
Resources: We develop information, tools and resources for grieving children, teens, and their families, as well as for those living with advanced illness and their family members. Our resources are also available to support volunteers, professionals and community advocates in their day-to-day work.
