Caring For You

The grief process is a difficult task. It is hard work, but you do not have to do it alone.

Our New Hope Bereavement program, with certified Bereavement Counsellor Denise Baynton is available to assist you after the death of a loved one, helping you cope with the many complex feelings and life adjustments that you will be dealing with. You can reach her at (905) 689-4852 or by email.

Regular 10 week peer group sessions 
are held three times per year on Wednesday evenings from 7-9 p.m. This support group will be topic specific, allowing for questions, answers and sharing stories.  Pre-registration is required with Denise.

Monthly drop-in sessions
 are held on the 4th Thursday evening of the month from 7-9 p.m. in the Family Centre. This evening is open to anyone who would like to learn more about what is available for you, to meet with Denise, and to network with others who have followed the 10 week support program.

Support after Suicide 
is a safe place in our community for survivors (families and loved ones of suicide victims) to share their loss with others who are experiencing similar thoughts and feelings.  Drop-in support is available to all adult survivors of suicide and is held on the 3rd Tuesday evening every month from 7-9 p.m. in the Family Centre.  Feel free to contact Denise for more information.

Each November we host a Community Bereavement Education and Support event and each December we host a Handling the Holidays candlelight memorial to support families in grief during the holiday season.

All of these events are complimentary as an extension of our Family Care program.

Individual or family grief counselling is available and can be scheduled with Denise at a set fee per session.
