The Journey of Hurt, Healing & Hope
with Beverley Yates

These weekly Grief Support Groups are held each Tuesday, September through June, at 9:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. OR 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.

This time offers you an opportunity to meet with a professional grief counsellor and others in a caring and confidential environment.  This provides a safe place for you to come and share, listen and receive support through your grieving journey.  Each week has a discussion topic, and resources are often available for additional support.

Anyone who has suffered a loss, who feels they would benefit from these sessions, is welcome to attend.

These sessions are held at the Cattel Centre (the beige house beside the Funeral Home at 45 Main Street), and full funding for this programme is provided by the Turner Family Funeral Home.

The facilitator of this group is Beverley Yates.  She is the Manager of the Spiritual Care at St. Joseph’s Villa in Dundas, where she has journeyed with Residents and their families for over 25 years, offering support through difficult times.  Along with certificates in Counselling, Palliative Care. Death/Dying & Bereavement Education and training in Critical Incident Stress Management, she brings a passion and warm love for people as they work through some of the challenges of grief.

Blue Christmas Candlelight Service

Early in the Holiday Season, we will be holding our annual, non-denominational Service to help those whom we have served get through the often difficult times of the Holiday Season.  You will be given an opportunity to light a candle and place a blue bulb on our Christmas tree in memory of your loved one.

After Care

Caring about our families doesn’t end on the day of the funeral.  We know this can be an overwhelming time and there are things that need to be addressed within a period of time.  Thats why we provide, free of charge, After Care with our After Care Specialist, Jane Hartwell, to assist you with many of the tasks that must be dealt with.

As part of the services we provide, we are proud to include all of the above programs free of charge to the families that we serve.
