Grief & Bereavement Support

The Grief and Bereavement Team at Dr. Bob Kemp Hospice are here to support you, your loved ones, and/or your clients in one’s grief journey. We recognize the uniqueness of each client, which we work alongside, and the notion that everyone grieves differently. We want to hear your story and work from where you are at.

We are here to support you whether you have experienced a recent loss or a number of years have passed since your person’s passing. We are here to support you if you are the caregiver of a spouse, parent, etc. living with Alzheimer’s/Dementia, cancer, or another terminal diagnosis, and dealing with feelings of grief in anticipation of death. We are also here to support you when it comes to additional losses such as a life event like retirement, or anything else which you would define as a loss.

Our Grief and Bereavement services include:

  • One to One Counselling 
  • Grief Coaching
  • Drop-in Support Groups
  • Closed Support Groups
  • Grief Text line & Online Chat Support
  • Grief Education/Literacy Presentations  

Support for both Adults, as well as Children and Youth. ALL Grief and Bereavement services are at no cost.
