Telephone Bereavement Program

Palliative Manitoba offers one-to-one telephone support by trained bereavement volunteers for individuals grieving the death of their loved one.

The Telephone Bereavement Program offers a safe anonymous environment to grieving individuals where they can speak freely and openly about their feelings. Each individual can expect to receive a weekly call from a trained bereavement volunteer once a match has been made.
