Welcome to the Hospice Family Catherine!

Thank You for your Support
The results are in for the Creating Moments that Matter end of year fundraiser and we are thrilled to share that, thanks to your generous donations, we exceeded our goal of $50,000!
Because of your support, Huron Shores Hospice is grateful to be able to continue to offer compassionate end-of-life care to residents at no cost. In the suites, families and residents are able to focus on the moments that matter in a safe and comfortable environment close to home.
Thank you for your generosity.
We would also like send out a big thank you to the Society of United Professionals who doubled the first $10,000 in donations to contribute to this amazingly successful event.
Grief Recovery Program
Grief Recovery Groups are being held on-line in January 2022 and in-person in Kincardine and Saugeen Shores starting in February and March, 2022.
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 offers a safe environment for you to explore your beliefs about dealing with loss. The program provides actions that will lead you to complete unresolved emotions that may still be causing you pain.
Grief delayed is not grief denied. Whether your grief is recent or, is a result of a past loss, the Grief Recovery Program is here to support you as you work through your loss.
Our trained and certified grief recovery specialists® will facilitate your journey with compassion, confidentiality, and dignity.
The Grief Recovery Group is not a ‘drop-in’ support group. The program builds on each previous session, so attendance and commitment for the 8 sessions is essential.
Please contact Cathy at 519-385-5683 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more or click here to register online.
Please note that in-person sessions scheduled for February and March may move to an on-line format if gathering restrictions are in place.
