Our Family Support Program offers a variety of opportunities for families to build a sense of community following a death. Family Nights are held monthly from September to June. These events bring families together to share a meal and engage in an activity that promotes connect to each other and the people they are grieving.
Our Caregiver Support Groups are facilitated by a grief counsellor and co-facilitator with lived grief experience. Groups offer parents/caregivers the opportunity to experience support for parenting while grieving and increasing their network of care. Information Sessions are hosted at the centre approximately 4 times a year.
This is an opportunity for caregivers and professional supports to learn about different topics related to grief, skill building, and resiliency. Topics have included “Talking to kids about death and dying”, “Talking about sudden death” and “Financial Planning Considerations following a death”.
