Bereavement Support for all ages

sun-through-treesThe death of someone in our lives is one of the most difficult situations we face, but we don’t have to do it alone. Sunshine Coast Hospice has trained volunteers to support you, your family and your friends through the end-of-life and grief journey.  Friends, relatives and co-workers often think we should “get on with it”, but at Hospice we encourage you to take the time you need to grieve. Individual companioning is available as you explore this journey with a volunteer in your home, at Hospice House or in a coffee shop.  Give us a call at 604.740.0475 if this feels like it might be a good fit for you.
