Client Day Program

It can be easier for someone to deal with a difficult, stressful and life-altering situation knowing they are not alone and, that there are others facing similar challenges.

The Client Day Program invites people living with a life limiting illness to gather in a comfortable group setting to support one another, learn strategies to help deal with various practical and emotional challenges, and discuss how to live well every day.

The weekly program begins with a support group segment facilitated by a social worker followed by an informative guest speaker, activity, music, seated yoga or social time. Clients enjoy light refreshments and engage in conversations with others. The program runs Wednesdays, from 1 to 4 p.m. at Hospice Kingston.

For more information, call 613-542-5013.
