At HHA we're constantly working on a multitude of initiatives, each aimed at making a difference in the way we talk about death both personally and in society at large, as well as in how we care for the dying, their caregivers, and their loved ones.
We invite you to explore our projects - both ongoing and completed - below, and the profound impact they have had on the individuals, families, and communities we serve.
More project reviews coming soon!
In September & October 2023, we teamed up with the Hamilton Public Library for a fall workshop series on how to talk to kids about dying, death & grief. Participants ranged from parents and caregivers to professionals who work with young people, all of whom were interested in bridging the communication gap between generations when talking about death.
In December 2023, after a temporary hiatus, we re-launched our drop-in support groups for those who've experienced pre- or peri-natal loss. As a new project feature, we're also providing learning opportunities for our Infant & Pregnancy Loss Doula (IPLD) Candidates, who have the possibility of co-facilitating the drop-in sessions alongside experienced IPLDs.
