Coping with the death of someone close to you is a struggle, but you are not alone. VON Oxford Bereavement Support is available.
We offer Individual or Group grief support, facilitated by specially trained volunteers at no charge. VON volunteers are compassionate people who have chosen to participate as team members along with caregivers and healthcare providers. Volunteers are trained in the Fundamentals of Hospice Palliative Care, as well as Facilitation of Bereavement Support and receive ongoing professional education, guidance and support.
VON Caring Circle – Group Grief Support
Join us the first Wednesday and third Saturday of each month for the VON Caring Circle Grief Support. This is an open-ended group – you do not have to come to every session, or even every month. You can drop in whenever you feel the need. Wednesday Caring Circle is held at Sakura House, located at 715180 County Rd 4 in Woodstock from 6:30pm-8:00pm and the Saturday session is held at the VON Adult Day Centre, located at 570 Ingersoll Ave in Woodstock from 10:00am-11:30am.
One-on-One – Individual Support
Grief is as unique as the person experiencing it. One-on-one grief support sessions are assessed and scheduled on an individual basis and are directed according to the needs of the bereaved. To arrange an assessment for service, please contact the Coordinator of Hospice and Volunteer services.
For further information about the VON Oxford Bereavement Support services, please call (519) 537-8515 and speak with the Coordinator of Hospice and Volunteer services.
