What we offer ...    

Dealing with a 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. 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.


Because of the generosity of the Co-operators there is no charge for grief groups.
