November 17th is National Bereavement Day 2020 in Canada
This year more than ever, Canadians have experienced many challenges in their grief. The presence of restrictions has made death and grief especially challenging for clients and caregivers. We here at Central Health have witnessed this additional struggle, we have seen firsthand that this has made loosing a loved one very difficult.
The Canadian Hospice & Palliative Care Association provides Canadians with resources to assist with their grief journey.
Grief and bereavement support is an essential element of all care at the end of one’s life. This year, the CHPCA invites Canadians on a shared journey that fosters compassion and encourages them to cope with their grief by supporting each other through living and grieving. At this trying time, we might be physically distant, but we are emotionally, spiritually and socially connected through our grief.
CHPCA provides Canadians with many helpful resources for those living with grief and bereavement. Find this year's resources at www.chpca.ca/GriefDay and share them with your friends, family and loved ones who are experiencing grief. Social media users are invited to engage with CHPCA’s Facebook (CanadianHospicePalliativeCare) and Twitter (@CanadianHPCAssn) and to use the hashtags #Grief2020 #GriefJourney #SharedJourney to help advocate for support and access to the necessary resources for those living with grief and bereavement.
