We will be hosting Death Cafés in Port Elgin and Ripley in September. Death cafes provide an opportunity to drink tea or coffee, eat dessert, and discuss death. It is a group-directed discussion with no agenda, objectives, or themes, not a grief support or counseling session. We aim to normalize the conversation around dying and death.

Please join us:

Port Elgin:

September 12th from 3:00-4:30 pm at the Port Elgin Library


September 12th from 2:00-4:00 pm at the Ripley Legion

RSVP to or call 519-385-5683

If you are dealing with grief related to the loss of a family member or friend, Huron Shores Hospice offers an 8-session educational program that provides a safe environment to explore your beliefs about dealing with loss. The program offers actions that will lead you to complete unresolved emotions that may still be causing you pain.

Grief delayed is not grief denied. Whether you have recently experienced a loss or have suffered a loss in the past, the Grief Recovery Program can provide support. Our trained and certified grief recovery specialists® will facilitate your journey with compassion, confidentiality, and dignity.

The Grief Recovery Program will be offered in Ripley starting September 20th for 8 weeks from 6:00-8:00 p.m.
