In 2020 Hospice Quinte introduced two new programs – Bereavement Companionship and Caregiver Companionship. Often, people who are caring for someone with a terminal illness don’t have the time or energy to come to a support group. The Caregiver Companionship program allows caregivers to schedule a weekly call with a compassionate volunteer that can be done at a time that works for them without leaving their home. While many people who are grieving find a benefit from support groups – some people are more private and prefer to have one on one conversations about their loss. The Bereavement Companion program answers that need. Empathetic volunteers are matched with people who are grieving the loss of a loved one for weekly supportive telephone calls. Find out more in this week's Changing Lives podcast.
