The Langley Hospice Society is a community-based, non-profit organization, providing compassionate support to help people live with dignity and hope while coping with grief and the end of life.
Grief is a natural reaction to loss.  It is the normal process that occurs after a person has experienced the death of a family member or friend.  Children express grief differently from teens and adults, and may have different responses.  The type of support that children receive during their bereavement can impact their health, social relationships and future success in school.
At Langley Hospice, our guiding principles for working with the children we serve are:
  • That every child is entitled to the opportunity to grieve in a supportive, informed and understanding environment. 
  • Open communication about death, grief and loss helps children heal from loss. 
  • Children naturally process their grief through playful, creative activities.  
  • Grieving children need to have their questions and concerns addressed, even when unable to express them directly. 
Our children and youth programs operate year round in the centre and on the surrounding grounds, and include 1:1 and group support, as well as seasonal day camp and summer camp programs.  We currently have an opening for a part-time Children and Youth Bereavement Support Worker.
