CAREGIVER RELIEF

Caregiver Relief is offered to family members to feel comfortable to take time away or rest. Caring for a loved one or friend who is very ill can be physically and emotionally draining. Volunteers can provide the opportunity for overworked caregivers to take a much needed break.

GRIEF PROGRAMS

An 8-week program which helps discover new tools to deal with loss, no matter what your loss is ... be it death of a loved one, broken relationship, loss of health, loss of job, loss of hope and dreams. There are over 40 different kinds of losses that a person can experience in a life-time. The uniqueness of the program lies in the essential idea that grief is a normal and natural emotional reaction to loss. Although that is an accurate statement, the majority of guidance for grieving people tends to move them toward their intellects to deal with their pain. We believe that: “Grievers don’t wind up at our door with broken heads, they arrive with broken hearts.”
~John W. James and Russell Friedman, founders of the Grief Recover Institute

RAINBOWS - GUIDING KIDS THROUGH LIFE'S STORMS


Rainbows for Children “It doesn’t have to hurt forever – Guiding Kids Through Life’s Storms” is a program for grieving children who are coping with loss. Our trained facilitators work with children, who are dealing with a significant loss-such as death, divorce, loss of a pet, moving or any other loss which is affecting their learning and/or behaviours. The Rainbows program provides the children with their own journal/workbook which they keep at the end of the program. Each session is filled with games, stories, and a craft which is related to the topic of the session. ‘Celebrate Me’ days are an important part of the program which helps the children to recognize their own unique individuality as a person and builds self esteem.

MY PATH

My Path is a bereavement program for persons with cognitive impairment to process the grief and losses they experience through death of a family member, friend or housemate. This is a four-week program which allows the participants to acknowledge their grief and help them to say goodbye to the pain and hurt the death has caused. Specially trained volunteers support individuals with cognitive impairment to process the grief and losses they experience through death of a family member, friend or housemate. It also helps them to say ‘hello’ to a new time with new tools to carry them through their grief.

SUICIDE SUPPORT GROUP (Support for those affected by suicide)

Someone you love has ended their own life….and yours is changed forever. This is a support group provided by facilitators who are available to listen to the hurt and pain without judgment.

Death touches all of our lives sooner or later. Sometimes it is expected, as with the passing of an elderly relative; sometimes it comes suddenly caused by a tragic accident. But suicide is different. The person who has died has chosen death and that simple fact makes a world of difference for those left to grieve. The suicide survivor faces all the same emotions as anyone who grieves a death, but they also face a unique set of painful feelings on top of their grief….guilt, stigma, anger and often a feeling of disconnection.

CANCER SUPPORT GROUP

These Cancer Support groups meet monthly to support those living with a cancer diagnosis. This is a peer support group and is open to anyone with a cancer diagnosis (non site specific), family and friends with the purpose of offering a safe environment where people may share their fears, their loneliness and their problems. We use informal discussion groups to provide support and practical information. You are invited to join the informal session to talk or just listen.

Anger fear, shock and denial are common reactions to a cancer diagnosis. Suddenly relationships with families and friends can change. Misunderstandings can add to the anxiety. Finding others who have similar problems or with whom you can share solutions can be helpful. We know that Community-based groups help people cope with cancer and take control of their lives. Individuals who participate in support groups tend to show greater improvements in their level of depression compared to the population at large. They develop a greater sense of well-being more quickly, along with a heightened self-esteem. They feel more confident of their ability to handle future stresses. They are more satisfied with life. But not only do they feel better – they live better. They are most likely to make positive adjustments in their lifestyles and in their relationships. The groups are hosted by specially trained facilitators at Seaforth Manor, Seaforth on the last Wednesday of the month. No registration is required.
