Caregiver Support Group

Our caregiver support group is designed to connect people caring for their person who is dying with other caregivers for peer-to-peer support. Hospice staff and volunteers facilitate the group to be able to help participants connect with resources.

Children and Teen Support

Hospice Peterborough believes strongly in supporting children and teens who are living in a family situation with someone who is dying. In order to meet the immediate needs of children and teens Hospice arranges one-to-one support or small group support as appropriate. Hospice staff can also help the family link with other community supports.
