Grief Support

Your Journey through Grief

Everyone’s journey through grief is unique. Your thoughts and feelings may be quite different than those of others who have experienced loss. That’s why our grief support services are designed to meet each person’s specific needs. From sharing a cup of tea to joining a support group or meeting with a counsellor, find out what special kind of caring is right for you or someone you care about. To make an appointment please phone (604) 531-7484 or email us.

Individual and Family Counselling

Loss is a normal part of life, but when someone dies we can feel anything but normal. Grieving is a painful process. It may seem that there is no one to listen or who understands.

Our registered clinical counsellors and trained volunteers provide individuals and/or their families with emotional, practical and spiritual support to help them cope with the strong and unfamiliar emotions which accompany change and loss. Our flexible counselling services are designed to meet each person’s specific needs, from children to seniors.

Grief Support Groups

Participating in a grief support group allows you to share feelings, feel supported and be reassured that your experience is a normal part of life. We provide a safe, confidential and supportive environment in which to share feelings and thoughts.

  • Gain a better understanding of the grieving process
  • Find a connection with others who are grieving
  • Develop an increased awareness of personal strengths

All support groups are co-facilitated by a counsellor and trained volunteer and are held throughout the year at our Supportive Care Centre.

Adult Support Group

Adults living with grief cope with strong and unfamiliar emotions. Our wide variety of Hospice Society tailored support options are designed to provide both one-on-one and group support care in a relaxing and open environment.

  • Available to adults living in the White Rock/South Surrey area
  • Individuals are encouraged to make a commitment to attend all 6 sessions
  • On-going counselling help is also available

Teen Support Group

Teens can feel helpless and vulnerable when experiencing emotional pain associated with grief. Our Hospice Society support for adolescents and young adults 13 years and older is flexible and tailored to each teen’s needs.

  • Offered on an as-needed basis
  • Groups are limited to 5 to 10 people
  • The number of sessions and location can be flexible, in order to best meet the teens’ needs

Grief Support for Children

Children need special care when faced with the loss of a friend, parent or other family member. Our grief support for children 6 to 12 years old is offered as long as a family needs our services.

Day Camps for Grieving Children

These camps are for children ages 6-12 years old, and are scheduled several times a year to coincide with Surrey School District Professional Development Days.

Relaxation Groups

We offer 6-week group sessions in a safe and caring atmosphere where people learn and experience relaxation using soft music, guided imagery and gentle touch. To register, please call 604-531-7484 or email us.

Walking Groups

This group provides support as people move through their grief and adjust to life without the person who died. Join us for some exercise, to meet new people who share a common experience, and to provide mutual support and acceptance. To register, please call 604-531-7484 or email us.
