Grieving a Loss
The death of a loved one can be a traumatic and emotionally overwhelming experience. At St. Joseph’s Hospice, we understand that grief is a natural and necessary accompaniment of loss and we offer a variety of supportive care programs and services that help individuals and families adjust to the loss(es) associated with the death of a loved one. St. Joseph’s Hospice compassionately supports the emotional, spiritual and social well-being of individuals and families along their palliative care journey. Our intention is to connect, educate and support our clients by:
- Giving responsive care to each person and/or family as they move through their unique journey
- Providing an atmosphere of respect for each person as they address their life meaning and purpose
- Encouraging healing and growth through participation in quality services
- Offering a place of solace where hope can be restored under the guidance of trained and empathetic staff and volunteers
If you have experienced a loss due to illness within two years and are a resident of London, you are welcome to reach out to our Community & Supportive Care team for more information.
Grief is like a long valley, a winding valley where any bend may reveal a totally new landscape.
Thanks to the generosity of our donors and community partners, all programs and services are offered at no charge for residents of London, Ontario. If you or a loved one is living with a terminal illness, or have had a loss due to illness in the past two years, we are here for you.
