It can be difficult to deal with grief when a loved one dies. Grieving is a natural process, it has no expiration date and it is different for everyone. Our organization programming is designed and facilitated by regulated healthcare professionals and all of our volunteers participate in provincially mandated training, in order to volunteer with our organization.

Hospice Wellington's Art Therapy program is a combination of traditional psychotherapy and creative expression. For individuals who do not have the words to express how they feel, Art Therapy can provide an alternative to traditional talk therapies.
