Lunch & Learn Series: How To Talk with Children About Advanced Illness

Online via Zoom

When someone in the family has a life-threatening illness, the whole family is impacted by the many changes, the concerns and the unknown. Adults may choose to avoid talking to children about the illness to protect them from pain and distress. However, when children are not informed, they often feel excluded, alone and isolated. It’s important to consider that children will feel something is going on in their family even when they are not told. They may even think that they have caused the anxiety and unsettled state of their family.

Lunch & Learn Series: When Grief is Complicated

Online via Zoom

Grief is how we respond when we experience loss. Everyone experiences grief and many people associate grief with the death of someone close to them. Grief is also a common reaction when someone in their lives is diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. Grief is complicated.

National Bereavement Day

The third Tuesday in November marks the annual National Bereavement Day in Canada. Bereavement refers to the time when a person experiences sadness after losing a loved one. We encourage you to remember that grief and bereavement are a part of life and should be talked about.
