What we offer ...
Dealing with a life-threatening illness or death can be the most difficult challenge we'll ever face. There's no reason to face it alone. The Greystone Bereavement Centre is here to help. We provide grief and bereavement services in a safe environment for people to share in the experience of journeying through their grief. The goal of the Greystone Bereavement Centre is to contribute to the health of grieving individuals within the Regina qu'Appelle Health Region and across Saskatchewan and to be a resource for education and training relating to grief and bereavement. Knowledge is empowering and at the Greystone Bereavement Centre we work to help people understand their grief so they can reinvest themselves in life and living and finding a new normal following the death of someone special. The Greystone Bereavement Centre offers specialized grief and bereavement counselling, group support, children's camps and education opportunities.
The Greystone Bereavement Centre is working to ensure that all Saskatchewan people can access the grief and bereavement support and services they need to navigate through their unique grief journey and contribute to the well-being of grieving individuals while helping create healthier Saskatchewan communities.
