Grief isn’t something we can take off like a uniform. When working in a field that exposes us to grief and loss, the deaths of those we serve and support can feel difficult to navigate. The pandemic has exposed us to many more types of loss including loss of autonomy, loss of relationships due to differing perspectives, loss of our sense of team with many leaving the field or taking jobs elsewhere, loss of our sense of purpose when the job we once loved no longer feels fulfilling, and much more.
The Dr. Bob Kemp Hospice in partnership with Hamilton Health Sciences (HHS) is offering a monthly group designed for frontline workers or those in roles that expose them to the many types of grief and loss experienced while working through the pandemic.
