Genesis Bereavement Program
Managing grief is a complex process and one you shouldn't attempt to undertake on your own. Don't be afraid to ask family, friends or community organizations for help.
Roadhouse & Rose Funeral Home also offers its own in-house Genesis Bereavement Resource Centre and Lending Library to provide professional post funeral services. We understand that our traditional ‘pre-need’ and ‘at-need’ services are important but helping people after a funeral is critical.
The Resource Centre opened in 1996 with Keith Taylor appointed as Director. Our own on-site grief counselor offers one-on-one sessions for Roadhouse & Rose families, group counseling for the community at large, as well as a wealth of resources. For our client families we offer these services free of charge. Group sessions are free of charge for any member of the community in need. For more information on grief and bereavement, please visit our GRIEF ISSUES section of this website or feel free to visit our Genesis Bereavement Resource Centre and Lending Library. If you would like more information on our Genesis program, please email us
or call 905.895.6631
The objectives of the centre are:
To offer assistance to those families who are serviced by Roadhouse & Rose following the funeral service.
To offer an extensive community lending library with more than 100 titles related to death, dying, grief and bereavement. Videos can also be obtained upon request. Most materials in the library can be borrowed for a period of three weeks.
To become a valuable resource for professionals and other care-givers who are working with families preparing for death as well as those who have experienced a loss.
To offer community grief support groups designed to bring people together for support and understanding during this difficult time. They meet on a weekly basis for a specific period of time. Schedules can be obtained upon request through this website.
To arrange workshops and seminars when required.
