Hospice provides one-on-one bereavement and palliative support by peer volunteers. Our volunteers provide an understanding, non-judgemental companionship for those who are dying, or grieving a death. Our volunteers and Grief Group facilitators are not counsellors or social workers and Hospice does not provide counselling.
We do have a list of private clinical counsellors who have noted an interest in counselling those in bereavement. If you are concerned about your mental health, or the mental health of a loved one, please speak to your family physician, who may arrange for a referral to the Adult Mental Health Service team or call us at 604-740-0475 and we can refer you to a community private clinical counsellor.
