A conclusion to our four part series on How do we grieve, in this new Covid world?

Albert Lo , President of PICA

It’s been a privilege for PICA to present this four-part series on some real-life issues any of us and our families may have to face. These challenges are not exactly easy to handle even at the best of times. And now, in the midst of this Covid-19 pandemic, issues such as end-of-life care, dealing with grief and loss, making final arrangements, and memorialization have become much more difficult and complex due to the need for social distancing and isolation.

In providing these articles, it is our sincere hope that the ideas and suggestions offered will be found both practical and useful to you.

The Partners in Care Alliance Society (PICA) is a registered not-for-profit society in BC. For more than two decades, we have been promoting consumers’ rights and providing end-of-life care education. Building on the pioneering work of like-minded individuals and the legacy of our predecessors reaching back to the 1970’s, PICA, has continued a long history of community involvement and advocacy, particularly pertaining to the promotion of higher ethical standards in the provision of end-of-life and bereavement care.

In spite of the ravages of the pandemic, we are fortunate that Canada has been able to withstand the brunt of the virus. The diverse backgrounds, experiences and resourcefulness of all Canadians have benefited one another and the country as a whole. Without a doubt, there is a wealth of wisdom and goodwill in the community. So if you have any helpful ideas that you wish to contribute to our work, please feel free to contact us at: 1–888–665–8815.
