Bereavement programs shifting venues


VON Chatham-Kent and Chatham-Kent Hospice announced recently, the VON Kids’ Circle and Supportive Care Volunteer Visiting programs will relocate back to the VON office at 190 Stanley Ave. in Chatham.

“We value our longstanding and ongoing partnership and are very pleased that both organizations have grown to require additional resources. Alongside Chatham-Kent Hospice, we look forward to continuing to serve the residents of Chatham-Kent, who are in need of Palliative Care and Bereavement Support services,” Nicole Hunter, District Manager Care and Service, VON ESC, said in a release.

VON Chatham-Kent will be partnering with Chatham-Kent Hospice on a new event planned for later this spring that is aimed at supporting families who have lost a child.

Footsteps – Walking through Grief will take place on May 6 starting at Salvation Army Church in Chatham at 2 p.m. and walking through Rotary Eco Trail starting at 2:30 pm.

“Although VON Bereavement support services will no longer operate out of the Hospice, our mutual goal to support those in need of grief support will continue in many ways; our Grief Walk is just an example of this” said Jessica Smith, Executive Director, Chatham-Kent Hospice.
