This progressive and flexible program is specifically designed for patients facing serious illness and their families to realize the best quality of life.

Every Day Counts puts patients of all ages at the centre of care. With tailored programs, including yoga, relaxation support groups, and our Beautiful You sessions, Every Day Counts promotes emotional and physical well-being with focus on the patient. Patients can choose from several classes that improve vitality and help them stay active.
Join our free programs dedicated to promoting well-being, which are adapted to your needs:
YOGA & TAI CHI: Group classes for all levels that include breathing exercises, relaxation, stretching, and meditation. There are eight classes to choose from each week: each class is followed by a casual cup of tea and a chat.
RELAXATION SUPPORT GROUPS: Led by a music therapist and social worker, a place to find quiet stillness with music and relaxation. Thursday mornings in the Every Day Counts Centre.
Portrait in the Garden: Enjoy a memorable afternoon of complementary pampering with our team of professionals. Finish the event with a beautiful portrait of yourself taken with family or friends as a keepsake. These events are held monthly.
Programs are free. Contact Program Coordinator for details on our programs:

SUPPORT & GRIEF COUNSELLING
Serious illness is as much an emotional and spiritual journey, as it is physical. We stand together as a community to provide empathy and support throughout this stage in life. Patients and family members are encouraged to seek out assistance in individual and group settings.
Our patient and family support counsellors are professionally trained and experienced in bereavement. They are available to listen, share, and offer insight on various subjects:
- COMMUNITY RESOURCES
- LIFESTYLE CHANGES
- COPING STRATEGIES
- EMOTIONAL IMPACT
- FUTURE CARE
