Grief and Bereavement Support

We all face loss, eventually. And often we – along with our friends, co-workers, and family members –  are not sure what supports are available. PCN physicians and staff have recognized there is an opportunity in the community to develop a program for individuals facing loss in their lives. The PCN, with the Hospice Society of Camrose & District, offers one-day Bereavement and Grief workshops four times throughout the year.

This workshop is for people who are coping with grief and loss, as well as for people interested in becoming “grief helpers:” co-workers, family members or even physicians and health care professionals supporting people going through a loss.

Participants will learn:
  • How to be a companion/grief helper to someone who has experienced a loss.
  • The importance of integrating loss into our own lives first.
  • That everyone’s grief journey is unique & that we all grieve differently.
  • How to recognize signs of complicated grief.
  • How to access appropriate community resources.
Talk to your family doctor or contact the PCN to find out when the next workshop is being held.
