I have been a volunteer with Beth Donovan Hospice in many capacities for the past 8 years. Most recently I have been part of the Grief and Bereavement Program where I have had the privilege of meeting with people who have lost a loved one.
Some of my experience has been in group settings. These groups offer opportunities for clients to come together in a safe place, share their stories, and offer support to each other.
At other times, I have had the honour to sit with a client on a one-to-one basis as that person travels on their unique journey through grief and sadness.
The Grief and Bereavement Program is only one of the free programs offered to the community by Beth Donovan Hospice and it has given me the gift of sharing the road travelled by those who are seeking to find some answers and discover new strengths during one of life’s most difficult times.
