Caregiver Bereavement Support Group
This support group is specifically for caregivers experiencing grief/bereavement in the loss of their loved one. The group creates community and offers a time of sharing, listening, and connecting with others with similar experience.
As spring moves towards summer, the sunshine offers hope to us all. It is a perfect time to consider our well-being, new ways to revive our spirit and how to find meaning on the difficult path of loss.
“The most beneficial things about participating in the program are I am not alone and met up with very supportive participants. I’m really appreciative with the support from the program especially with the leader” – Bereavement Group member
