Coronavirus Update for PGHS March 16th

Any Time Programs

Community Match / Nav-Care

If you or someone you care for has been diagnosed with a life-limiting illness and feel that you need some extra support, our volunteers will come to your home. We offer emotional support, help with tasks like writing letters, social connection, and non-judgemental listening. We can meet with you in your home, the hospital and any of the care facilities in Prince George.

One on One Caregiver Support

Caring for someone with a life-limiting illness can be isolating and overwhelming. Sometimes you need someone to talk to outside of your circle. We offer one on one support for Caregivers on the phone, in person or through a tablet. We understand that carving time for yourself can be difficult. We try to make it as easy as possible for you. Whether it be a quick conversation or a scheduled session. We are here for you.

Remote Hospice

For people that may not be able to leave their homes or live in rural areas, we can provide support remotely. This is a new program to bring our support into homes through the use of technology.

Drop-in Programs

Tea Time for the Soul is a peer support drop-in group held weekly, open to all of those grieving a loss. Join us Mondays from 3:00 to 5:00 pm and Saturdays from 9:00 to 11:00 am at the Solace Center. Share your story with tea and cookies and begin to peel the layers of grief away.

Registered Programs

Children’s Grief Program

A program for children/teens that are experiencing a painful transition from death, divorce, separation, abandonment, or neglect. Utilizes the Rainbows internation program

We have two – 13 week sessions per year.

Broken Circle

Broken Circle is a registered 10-week structured support group for adults who are grieving the death of a loved one. Throughout the program, you will learn what to expect and gain valuable tools while talking to others who are sharing a similar journey. Share your story, feelings, and realizing you are not alone in your grief and emotions and can one-day experience joy again.

Grief and Grub for Guys

Over the course of the eight weeks, men find that they have things in common. There are friendships made. They become comfortable talking about their loss and what they are experiencing because of it. The program offers peer support, education about grief and a cooked meal. We do not charge a fee for this program to help eliminate any barriers to join.  Please consider donating to Grief and Grub for Guys to keep it accessible for those that need it.

If you are interested in joining one of our programs or are looking for more information, please call (250) 563-2551, email info@hospiceprincegeorge.ca, or stop by the Hospice Society Office at 1506 Ferry Avenue. We also have a variety of pamphlets and case notes available regarding the grieving process, free of charge.

The Prince George Hospice Society does not provide counseling services; we have a team of highly trained and experienced grief support workers. However, they are not certified, counselors.
