Evening Bereavement Group

What is the Evening Bereavement Group?

In May of this year, we were able to meet with many of our volunteers and brainstorm about our communities’ needs. One of the needs identified was a place to meet and discuss the challenges of grieving and healing following a loss.

We are offering an Evening Bereavement Group, an opportunity to share thoughts and feelings and needs with others traveling a similar path. 

Discussions can vary from the process of dying, the physical changes, emotional, the “hole in your life”, losses prior to death, paperwork just to mention a few. Subjects can, and will, vary to meet the needs of everyone.

Bereavement is a journey, one as unique as every person. There is no right or wrong way, no specific start or end time.

Everyone is welcome to join the group whether you are coming from a recent, a past, or an evolving loss event in your life. This is an opportunity to meet with a facilitator for an informal discussion with others traveling a similar path. 

PRHPCS WELCOMES YOU TO OUR EVENING BEREAVEMENT GROUP

Ian’s Walk for End of Life Care 2015

On his walk passing through Alberta, members of the Prairie Rose Hospice Palliative Care Society were able to meet Ian and help him find places to rest on his journey raising awareness for palliative care. It was truly an amazing experience to meet Ian, be a part of his campaign, and benefit from his support of local hospice care initiatives. Thanks, Ian!
Ian Bos Run for End of Life Care 2015
From Ian’s Facebook Page for his walk:

My name is Ian Bos. On 16 January 2015, my father, Ted Bos, passed away after a brave fight with cancer. He was 68 years old. We had many ups and downs with the medical system; however, Ted was treated with the utmost compassion and dignity by the Aberdeen Palliative Care Society in New Glasgow, Nova Scotia.

With their assistance, we were able to keep Dad at home where he wanted to be with his family with the confidence that if we needed anything, they would be there. And they were there with us every step of the way.

On 21 May 2015, I started my cross-country walk in memory of my father and in honor of the excellent care that Ted received at the Aberdeen Palliative Care Society.

We exceeded our goal and raised $36,000+ for organizations such as the Aberdeen Palliative Care Society and many others. More importantly, we raised critical awareness for hospice palliative care across Canada and the people who dedicate themselves to providing people with quality of life and compassion. Donations are still be accepted and I always encourage you to support your local hospices and palliative care organizations www.ianswalk2015.ca Additionally, to support your local centres and national awareness, donations can be made by texting “hospice” to 20222 which to makes an automatic $10 donation.
You can continue to follow my progress on raising awareness, including my work with Give a Mile, who provide compassion flights free of charge.
