Grief support during the pandemic

The isolation and anxiety generated by the pandemic and social distancing can be a painful burden to bear for those who have lost a loved one, either shortly before or during confinement.
Unlike work, social gatherings, and leisure activities, grief is not something that can be put on hold. Psychological support is therefore more critical than ever in the current context. This is precisely why the Vaudreuil-Soulanges Palliative Care Residence (VSPCR) is now providing grieving individuals the opportunity to take part in small virtual discussion groups.
These free meetings, hosted by the Residence’s psychosocial coordinator, are held using the Zoom platform.
They are offered to the public free of charge and give participants the opportunity to share their experiences and feelings. After all, communication is an essential part of the healing process.
Meetings will be held three times a week and dates will be determined based on the availability of participants.
For more information or an interview, please contact Laura Lindner, psychosocial coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (450) 202-2202, extension 137.
