Memento mori is a Latin phrase meaning 'remember you must die', but, we’re only human.

Being a parent is rewarding, but also very challenging. When it happens for the first time, you realize that you are now responsible for much more than your own life and well-being.

After the loss of a loved one, it’s not unusual for an individual to experience a wide range of feelings and emotions. Grief is a completely natural response to loss.

One of the questions people ask the most about losing a loved one is, “when does it get better or easier?”. The real answer is different for everyone, because no one grieves in exactly the same way, and there is no timeline for bereavement. Grief never ends, but it does go through changes. The first few weeks and months are filled with arrangem ...…
 
Death is often a difficult subject for adults to discuss, but it becomes even harder when we need to talk to children about it. Often when there’s bad news to share, our first instinct is to protect children from the pain by withholding information. We might choose to use words that we think will make it easier for them to grasp, when in all re ...…

Caregivers are individuals who provide ongoing care and assistance, without pay, to family members and friends who need support due to physical, cognitive or mental health conditions.

Dealing with the grief caused by the death of a loved one can be challenging at any time of year, and at many special occasions.

Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz said it best – “there’s no place like home”. For most of us, home is where we want to be.

It’s natural, then, that some individuals who are experiencing their end of life want to spend th ...…

If you are a caregiver for someone who is dying, it can be even more emotion ...…

Grief can come from many sources, and not all of them are either obvious, or predicable.

The ongoing 24 hour news cycle is constantly churning out n ...…

When someone dies, their loved ones are left to deal with a seemingly endless series of arrangements and events.

That phase can seem overwhelming in and of itself, especially if you have neve ...…
 
Hospice palliative care isn’t something most people like to talk about – or may even know about. Hospice palliative care is made up of two parts – hospice care and palliative care. Palliative, or comfort, care is appropriate for people of any age and at any stage of a serious illness. Hospice care is generally for those who have twelve or fewer ...…
 
The death of a family member or friend can be very difficult, and not just for the person who experienced that loss directly.

Dealing with the loss of a loved one can be difficult for any person, and none of us can be fully prepared for the situation.

The loss of a loved one is difficult at any time of year.

This episode of the Changing Lives podcast provides tips and in ...…
 
When someone you love is dying, there are a million things that go through your mind on a day-to-day basis.

Grieving is hard enough, but when people are experiencing grief that they feel they cannot openly share, it becomes even harder.

Sometimes people are worrie ...…
 
Everyone knows that exercise is good for you, but it’s not often the first thing people think of as a tool for helping them cope with grief. When we think of people who are grieving our minds don’t immediately call up images of people running, swimming, playing hockey, or taking part in a group exercise class. Exercise isn’t just good for your ...…

For most of us, home is where we want to be. It’s where our creature comforts are, it’s where we feel most contented and happy, and it’s where our family and friends come to visit.

Canada’s first National Bereavement Day is on November 21, 2018.
