Ambiguous Loss & Grief

"The word 'ambiguous' helped me understand what was going on.  I'm still married to my wife.  I love her, but I don't live with her.  I've always been crazy about her and still am.  She's looked after, but it is a huge loss for me.  The ambiguity is exactly how I feel."  - a male caregiver in Toronto

This workshop is for family members and friends of a person living with dementia to help them understand this type of loss and grief and begin to work through the grieving process.  

Wednesday, November 15
10 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. (lunch not provided)

For more information or to register, please call 705-722-1066 or 1-800-265-5391.  You may also email Michelle.
