OUR BEREAVEMENT SUPPORTS 

Cultivating Your Organizations Legacy.

RESIDENTIAL CARE PROGRAMS

Grief Advocacy supports retirement and long-term care homes across Canada with Residential Grief, Death and Legacy Programming.  This is a topic that is often top of mind for your residents and we work to ensuring they not only have someone to talk to about their legacy but also have factual information about end of life options. We have programs that include families or employees to ensure conversations are transparent and meaningful.

RITUAL & CEREMONY 

It is in moments of hard transitions that we can remember what is most important to us. Resident End of Life Care, Memorials Services, Employee Death, Mergers & Acquisitions, New office buildings, layoffs or leadership changes are just some of the meaningful moments that we mark through ritual and ceremony. We can share some wonderful examples of what other organizations have done to mark important transitions.

GRIEF & LOSS INFORMED EDUCATION

Our expertise in consulting organizations through grief and loss means we can provide you with a depth of knowledge, examples and actions that have been proven to work in other organizations or institutions. Our clients range from healthcare, family law, and advocate groups to leadership associations. We curate our training programs to be relevant to your employee experiences.

ORGANIZATIONAL CULTURE

The culture of your organization is solidified in how you respond to difficult situations. We consult on best practices for your bereavement policies and processes and support your leaders journey through communicating and developing a modern and standardized practice for your global employee experience.

Team Support

Providing third-party support is incredibly important so employees can have authentic conversations about uncertainty, trust issues and concerns. Often it is the safety of these groups and your willingness to make space for them that cultivates and deepens your teams commitment.

One on One Leader Support

We support your leaders in the moment and help them craft messages that are aligned with who they are in the workplace. Not every leader is expected to be an emotional support yet we highly recommend that you consider being something deeper than short and sweet in your communications. We do one on one coaching and group leadership supports that curates the best of your team.
