The bereavement experience
The grief process is a private and highly individual experience. It takes time when dealing with the loss of a loved one. There is no specific timetable, nor any required steps to navigate the grief process. While some people start to feel better in weeks or months, it may take years for others.
In 2012, the Bereavement Care Program was established to offer support to those who have lost a loved one. We recognize the importance of not only caring for our patients during their time with us, but we also want to care for patients' family members.
