Pat finds a way to move forward after the death of her daughter, with the help of her Bereavement Peer Support volunteer, Gail.

 

Bereavement Peer Support

Our Bereavement Peer Support program assists in normalizing your experience of grief and loss, and provides an opportunity for you to talk about your loss and share your story in a safe, non-judgmental space one-on-one with a specially trained volunteer. Meetings between you and your volunteer can take place in your home or in another mutually agreed upon location.
