BEREAVEMENT RESOURCES & EVENTS

“Grief is both a necessity and a privilege. It comes as a result of giving and receiving love.”

- DR. ALAN WOLFELT​

Grief is a normal, natural and necessary reaction to any type of loss that includes a wide range of feelings such as deep sadness, anger, regret, fear and loneliness. The process of reconciling the loss of a loved one who has died can be very different for each person. You do not have to do it alone.

Heart House Hospice offers bereavement support to any resident of Peel grieving the death of a loved one. Bereavement support programs include:

  • One-to-one bereavement support, counselling and psychotherapy with regulated professionals
  • Bereavement Support Groups
  • Educational Seminars and Workshops for individuals and organizations
  • Social Walking Groups
  • Health and Wellness Support (Art Therapy,
    Meditation and Wellness Education)
  • Access to Complementary Therapies (Reiki, Therapeutic Touch and Aromatherapy)
  • Group Debriefs/Counselling for community partners
  • Information and referral to other bereavement and community supports.

At Heart House Hospice, bereavement support is available when the client is ready to receive it…weeks months or years after a loved one’s death!

WONDERFUL LIFE LINE

EASE THE PAIN
"The support, compassion and resources from Heart House helps ease the pain of grief."
SAFEST PLACE I FELT
"For me it was a life vest during the first weeks of trauma. I like everything about it specifically the best facilitator I have ever had at any professional or personal group, connecting with the wisdom of the group in various stages of loss- so comforting and valuable, the energy of the group / space - The safest place I felt each week but one of the safest places I have ever been even before my grief journey. Heart House Hospice is a miracle place. I am so blessed to know about it and will think of it first thing if anyone I love is suffering a loss or trauma."
SO VERY HELPFUL
"The group sessions were so very helpful and I have also found new people to enjoy socializing with as well as opportunities to help me through the grief journey."
