Grief & Bereavement Support
Grief, although painful, is a healthy response to loss. Often the difference in someone’s grief experience is whether they face it alone or with the support of others who do not judge the rightness of their emotion or the time it takes to adjust to the loss. Our specially trained grief support volunteers provide emotional, spiritual and psycho-social support to individuals of all ages and families who are anticipating a death or experiencing grief due to the loss of a loved one or friend.
This support is available, free of charge, whether you have used Hospice Muskoka services or not. By understanding what is happening, identifying and expressing your feelings in ways that feel right, eventually you are able to reinvest your energy and focus into building a new life, rather than staying rooted in your loss. The memories will always stay close but, with the right support and tools, you can learn to feel hope, optimism, and joy again.
