Grieving the death of a loved one can be a very difficult journey. People experience grief in their own unique way and at their own pace. Hospice's grief supports exist because we believe that no one in our community should have to grieve alone. Hospice offers grief support through a variety of individual and group programs and is available to children, youth and adults.


To learn more about the grief support available at Hospice, please watch the video Here, look through the tabs on the left of the screen, and reach out to us if you have any questions.  


Please note that our Grief Support Programs are unfunded and rely on the generosity of our community to continue to be offered free of charge to local residents.  


Community Care Receives $87,000 in Aviva Community Fund Competition       

Support for local residents who have experienced the loss of a loved one has received a significant financial boost through the Aviva Canada Community Fund. 

The Community Care Health & Care Network was awarded $87,000 from the Aviva insurance company's national competition to fund charitable community initiatives across Canada. Community Care's Hospice Services application for grief support funding was one of 10 projects to receive funding through the Aviva Community Fund. The winners were announced Dec. 5 on Aviva's website. IMG_1548 compressed (1024x683).jpg

The $87,000 proposal for grief support services was one of more than 500 submitted to the competition from all across Canada. Community Care’s Grief Support programs help people find their way through grief, while helping them live with renewed hope and happiness despite loss. The programs, offered through Community Care Hospice Services, are entirely unfunded by government sources. 

The grief support proposal received a significant boost from many members of the public who cast online votes in support of the funding proposal in October. Over the 10-day period, #GrieveNotAlone received more than 26,000 votes from supporters. The public vote was one criteria used by Aviva to assess the funding proposals. By placing in the top five projects in the Community Health category, the submission moved to the final round of Aviva consideration.

“Support from fundraising and development initiatives is required to continue operating our programs at no cost to clients,” said Ryan Alexander, Manager of Community Care Hospice Services. The $87,000 proposal represents the annual cost for Community Care to present grief support, he said.
