Hospice Orillia offers Supportive Counselling

Following the diagnosis of a life-threatening or terminal illness, many people find it helpful to speak to someone about the many emotions, thoughts, fears and transitions that come along with their illness. Individual counselling offers a safe space to explore ways to address difficult topics, and how to manage life changes. Counselling is provided by our Social Worker, who is a registered healthcare professional. This support may take place at your home, wherever “home” is, or at our office location in a private space. This service is also available for individuals caring for a loved one with a life-threatening or terminal illness. Our Social Worker is available to speak with you about ways to take care of yourself, what to expect when a loved one is dying, as well as the wide range of emotions experienced by caregivers.  For more information, contact Daniela Accomando, Volunteer Coordinator, Community Social Worker, via email or by calling 705-325-0505 Ext. 118. or Stefanie Collins, Community Social Worker, via email or by calling 705-325-0505 ext. 211. Alternatively, you can fill in our online Referral Form.
