The death of someone very close may feel overwhelming and impact many aspects of your life. Thanks to generous community support, Victoria Hospice Bereavement Services are available to help you understand grief and adjust to your loss.
Our services include virtual support; in-person counselling; a variety of bereavement support groups, including drop-in and journal groups; information and education; and referrals where appropriate.
We offer free individual counselling for South Island residents (up to six sessions). Some fees may apply for ongoing programs, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds. You do not need a prior connection with Victoria Hospice to access bereavement support. Services are provided in our Community Support Centre and for more details, call 250-519-3040.
