Bereavement Follow-up Program
A series of regularly scheduled telephone calls to the bereaved are scheduled for 2 week, 3 month, 6 month and 12 month intervals following a death of a loved one. Volunteers, with specific training in active listening and recognizing complex grief issues, conduct the calls under the supervision of the Support Services Leader. Complex grief issues are referred to the Grief and Bereavement Counsellor for follow-up.
Memorials for families and friends allow for spiritual and emotional expressions of grief in a supportive environment. Trained volunteers, under the supervision of our Support Services Leader, facilitate bi-monthly memorial and candle-lighting ceremonies. Due to COVID-19 safety measures, our bi-monthly memorial services are temporarily postponed.
