Virtual Compassion Care Community Centre

At HPCO we strive to provide quality education and support and are excited to be able to do so through our Virtual Compassion Care Community Centre. These activities take place virtually and are intended for seniors, people isolated at home, caregivers, and hospice volunteers. Each of the programs is run by facilitators in a comfortable and interactive group setting to increase social connection and supports. All of the programs are free to access. Join us to learn and connect!
HPCO understands that because of the COVID-19 pandemic, many people are finding it more difficult to gather with family, friends, and peers for support in dealing with grief or loss. We are continuing to explore our options for expanding access to virtual support groups to address this need.
Please see below for the complete list of programming. For more details on each of the programs and information on how to connect, you can click the title of the program you are interested in joining.
Please note that the Telephone Based Programs have been made possible through funding and support from the Government of Ontario and the Older Adult Centres’ Association of Ontario.
If you have any questions please email Nav.Dhillon@hpco.ca
