Grief & Bereavement

Grief & Bereavement can have a profound impact on us physically, socially, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Because these affects can be unexpected and challenging, Hospice offers a wide range of compassionate and helpful support services for individuals and families facing death and loss.  To learn more about our family centered grief and bereavement model, please reach out by phone or email.

Support Services

One on One Support
Professional staff are available to provide grief support to individuals who are struggling to make sense of their loss. Please call the Hospice office if you wish to consult with a Social Worker.

Angels Remembered
The holidays can be a difficult time. Each Christmas, Hospice has Angels Remembered trees in several locations across the region. Join us and place an angel on the tree in memory of your loved one who has died. Learn more…

Resource Library
Come in and browse or borrow from our library which includes many resources on topics related to dying and grief. Many people find that books and videos about death and dying can help provide a new perspective, much needed information, and reassurance that the grief we feel is “normal”.

"With no government funding, the hospice society relies heavily on fundraisers and donations... Harrison says this change has already allowed the team to put their focus back on developing programs and services."

Management of the Sobeys store on Prince Street in Truro donated flowers to @cehhospice which in turn donated them to staff and physicians at Colchester East Hants Health Centre. We are grateful to Sobeys for supporting the community even more than they already have.
