Grief Support Walk

Globe and hand
Sometimes it's easier to talk side by side, while taking in nature's best.

In warm months, we walk around Mirror Lake together followed by coffee and conversation back at Hospice.
During the cold months, we meet at the Camrose Recreation Centre walking track.

This drop-in group meets every Wednesday morning at 9:30am , coffee at 10:00. If you only want to come for coffee and conversation, that's great too!

LocationHospice Office at Mirror Lake Center (lower level, south side entrance).
Please register with the Hospice volunteer when you arrive.
