Telephone Bereavement Support


Palliative Manitoba offers one-to-one telephone support by trained volunteers for grieving individuals throughout Manitoba.

This program offers a safe environment to grieving individuals where they can speak openly about their feelings. Each individual can expect to receive a weekly call from a trained volunteer once a match has been made. Each call can be up to one hour in length and a match can last for 12 – 15 months

Please note this is not a 24-hour service or a crisis line. This is not a professional counseling service but rather a friendly support program. Clients must self-refer and will be matched with a volunteer following an intake with a Palliative Manitoba staff member. This process may take several weeks depending on the availability of volunteers.

Please call our office for more information or to sign up for service at 204-889-8525 ext. 225.

If you are in crisis please contact the Klinic Crisis Line at 204-786-8686.
