Bereavement Care Coordinators assist clients who have experienced loss. The Bereavement Care Coordinator is responsible for the intake, assessment, and service provision for clients living and coping with grief and bereavement. The coordinator will be involved in case management and case consultations with other health professionals in Durham Region. The coordinator will ensure continuity of 1-1 programming and bereavement support group programming.
This program is based on a peer support model, which means that volunteers who are bereaved and further along in their grief journey, provide support to clients who are also bereaved.
Our trained volunteers can meet with you one-to-one to provide a safe place to share your story. Our volunteers are people like you, who have experienced a death in their life and can provide 8 sessions of peer support.
Our trained volunteers can meet with you one-on-one to provide a safe place to share your story. Sessions are scheduled weekly at a mutually convenient time at our office.
After the loss of a loved one, many people want to connect with others who have experienced a similar loss. Our groups are facilitated by two bereavement volunteers who are supported by staff. Generally, groups meet once a week, in two-hour sessions, for up-to 10 weeks. Groups include: Drop-In, Spousal/Partner Loss, Parental Loss, Child Loss, Teen Bereavement, and Children’s Bereavement.
Volunteers also facilitate bereavement groups including:
