Have you been diagnosed with a life-limiting illness and are wondering now what is ahead of me?
What am I supposed to be doing?
I have no one to talk to that understands.
All I hear from family and friends is that everything is going to be okay.
But, what if I am not feeling okay emotionally about the diagnosis, the treatments, the financial burden this is causing, etc?
WE ARE HERE and we will HEAR YOU!
All services are at no cost.
Diagnosed with Breast Cancer?
Receiving unexpected news about the possibility of cancer can be very scary.
Where do you go?
Whom can you talk to?
Where can you turn?
Hospice Dufferin is here to help you.
When you are first diagnosed and undergoing treatments, we can connect you with a Breast Cancer Survivor, so that you will have someone who understands, someone to talk to you, someone who has been there.
If you need financial assistance, we can help you find resources.
If you are looking for ways to talk to your children about your diagnosis/treatments we have books and DVD that will help.
We have wigs and hats you can borrow.
You may be eligible to attend Hospice social programs such as Crafting for Wellness or Circles or Art Therapy.
You can attend educational Hospice workshops.
When you are completing treatment, you may wish to attend our peer support Breast Cancer support group.
If you have been diagnosed with advanced breast cancer, you may want to attend an advanced breast cancer support group.
Regardless of the stage of your journey, we are here for you.
Are you living with a life-limiting illness or know someone who is?
Would you like to speak with someone about what is happening in your life?
Would it be helpful to meet others who have been diagnosed with a life-limiting illness?
Have you ever considered recording your life stories?
As a family member of someone facing illness, would you benefit from talking to someone about the challenges of your role, or find it helpful to have a break from your caregiving tasks?
Many clients tell us they wish they had called sooner.
"Thank you to the Hospice Dufferin team for your kindness, compassion and patience, you have been a tremendous support."
