The outpour of support through sponsorships and volunteers has been truly amazing. We are incredibly thankful for this generous community!

Grief Recovery Program 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 for you 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 starting in September in-person in the following towns:
Port Elgin on Tuesday mornings, beginning September 20th
Ripley on Wednesday afternoons, beginning October 5th
Kincardine on Wednesday evenings, beginning October 19th
Register here, indicating the location you are interest in attending.
Virtual groups will be established as needed.
COVID 19 precautions will be required including masking and proof of COVID 19 vaccination.
Everyone’s lives are made up of special days, days that we will always remember. We have launched the "Day of Care" campaign as a way for our donors to share a special day for their company, business or individual lives, while covering the operational costs for a day in the hospice suites.
Our Day of Care sponsorship allows community members, businesses, organizations and families to help support the daily caregiving needs of our residents by donating the cost of operating a single suite for one day. The date can be chosen by the donor and may be a day that is meaningful to them, their family, business or organization.
Each sponsored Day of Care will be recognized both in suite, with a logo on the door, and on our social media channels with the opportunity to share the meaning behind the date chosen.
If you, or someone you know would like to sponsor a Day of Care, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
