Hospice Care Ottawa offers counselling to caregivers who look after someone with a life-limiting illness if their loved one receives services from Hospice Care Ottawa. This is available to adults, adolescents, and children. Different approaches are used according to the needs and age of clients (e.g. for children sand play therapy and drawing may be used).
Our trained volunteers offer additional support to family members with complementary therapies such as Therapeutic Touch, Reiki, Reflexology, foot and back massage. Caregivers are also encouraged to attend our Caregiver Evening Out, Caregiver Yoga and occasional Caregiver 'Day Away' Retreats.

There is no charge to the individuals with life-limiting illnesses and their families we serve, therefore donations are welcomed and encouraged.
