Grief Counselling





Hospice Kawartha Lakes is a division of Community Care in the City of Kawartha Lakes. It is a non-profit agency which was founded in 1988 to serve the people of the City of Kawartha Lakes. Services are provided by trained, caring volunteers who are supported by professional, knowledgeable staff.

The Mission of Hospice Kawartha Lakes is to enhance the quality of life for individuals and families facing life-threatening illness and grief.


Bereavement Support

Hospice Kawartha Lakes’ individual support and grief programming can help you to move through your grief journey. Bereavement support is offered to children, youth and adults, families of Hospice clients as well as any community member who is experiencing bereavement.

Individual support is provided by staff or visiting volunteers. Visits are in, but not limited to home, school, care facilities and hospital. Hospice Kawartha Lakes aims to help the grieving move through their grief to help move toward a new wholeness and health.


Children and Youth Programming

Hospice Kawartha Lakes staff and volunteers recognize the special impact of loss for children and youth. Following an initial assessment, the Coordinator may offer in-home visits by a volunteer. Hospice Kawartha Lakes offers grief groups for children and teens. This offers the child or youth an opportunity to express the meaning of loss in a safe and caring environment to assist with the development of healthy ways of coping. The groups are fun and use a variety of interactive methods, such as expressive art, therapeutic journaling, crafts and games to assist with the healing process.


Support for Caregivers

Hospice Kawartha Lakes is aware of the stress and anxiety many caregivers experience while caring for a loved one. Caregivers, friends and families can contact us to receive support from our staff and our trained volunteers. The Coordinator may offer supports including ongoing telephone contact, a volunteer to provide respite, and/or a volunteer to visit with the caregiver to listen, share, and provide information.



Hospice Kawartha Lakes provides ongoing training, education, and groups to support our volunteers. Our staff and trained volunteers are available to come and speak with groups, classes, or other organizations to provide information and increase public awareness of hospice palliative care, grief, and bereavement.

Grief Counseling Kawartha Lakes

The death of a loved one is arguably the most traumatic experience any of us can face. The goals of Kawartha Lakes grief counseling are recovery and acceptance. Kawartha Lakes trauma counseling seeks to help an individual process, debrief, and cope with an extreme stress. Recovery from loss through grief counseling Kawartha Lakes does not mean that all of the pain, memories or significance of a loved one are resolved, but that one is able to accept what has happened, and that those experiences and memories are an important part of life, but not all consuming. When you see a Kawartha Lakes trauma therapist or Kawartha Lakes grief counselor, you will find a listening ear. There are several stages of grieving, and compassionate therapy in Kawartha Lakes can be a strong shoulder that will facilitate healing. Kawartha Lakes grief therapy and counseling in Ontario can help one move through the shock, trauma, and acute suffering, so that you are not destroyed by what has happened. Most likely, there are still loved ones in your life who need you, and if you are grieving, you may utterly lack any emotional energy at all to deal with them. Kawartha Lakes grief counseling can help stabilize you.


Child Counselling

At Theravive you will also find a network of caring, compassionate therapists who specialize in working with children.  A Kawartha Lakes child counselor is a vital resource for helping your child move through and heal from difficult issues for healthy development.  Let them help you choose the right qualified Kawartha Lakes child counselor to begin the vital process of healing and helping for your loved one.
