They are provided 1-6 supportive care sessions, and can be referred as needed to local service agencies for long-term support.

Virtual Bereavement Support Group
Every Wednesday from August 12  - September 30
1:30 - 3:00 pm

In this group we will address grief responses, the unique challenges of mourning during COVID and strategies for carrying on when we feel despair, fear, and an unfinished good-bye.

This 6 week group will offer a beginning to what will understandably be a lengthy process of grief work. It is meant to provide a safe space to adjust to these unique challenges. We encourage you to join our group and receive support.

To register contact Charlotte by email ckoven@circleofcare.com or phone 416-635-2900 ext 271.
