We are sharing this video from the Truro Library - Colchester-East Hants Public Library in honour of children's grief awareness day. We love to support local and are pleased to have copies of "Hank's Ball", written by local authors Sam Madore and Joey Schurman and illustrated by local artist Amanda Bent available at Hospice.
These books are a great resource for children who are struggling with the loss of a loved one. ... See MoreSee Less
November 19 is Children’s Grief Awareness Day. Did you know that we have a variety of resources for children and youth available at our Hospice office, including our HUG in a box grief kits designed with tools and activities to help children and youth during their grief journey.
For more information or to access these resources, please reach out to Laura McNutt, our children and youth grief and bereavement social worker, or Zach Higgins, our social work student placement, who is working with us Mondays and Tuesdays (902-893-3265).
