Bereavement

Grief is the deep sadness that we feel when we suffer loss.  Grief is normal and natural and it affects each of us differently.  There is no right way or wrong way to grieve.  Our services provide you with the support you need throughout the grieving process.

Grief Support Services

Our Bereavement Social Workers are knowledgeable about the grief process and are available to provide compassionate support and education to those who are grieving the death of a loved one.

  • Individual and family sessions
  • Telephone sessions
  • Support groups: Adults, Teens, Children
  • Camp Emily
  • Grief literature and resources
  • Referrals as appropriate

Grief Support Groups

People who are grieving the death of a loved one share a common bond.  Our support groups provide an atmosphere of acceptance and understanding where participants can help each other work through feelings and come to terms with the new experience of life without their loved one.  Information shared by participants is confidential.  Our support groups are available for all who have experienced the loss of a loved one through death.  These groups are open to the public, and there is no charge to participate.  You can begin attending at any time.

Camp Emily is a regional day camp for youth ages 7-18 who have experienced the death of someone they loved.  Camp Emily has touched the lives of many people in our area by providing grief support and age appropriate activities facilitated by bereavement social workers, hospice nurses, and counselors.  Newly bereaved as well as those who have been on the path of grief for some time are welcome.  Parents or guardians attend and participate in the daylong event.  Camp Emily is offered the 2nd Saturday in October free of charge.  Learn more…

 

You do not have to walk alone as you grieve.  We are available to walk by your side as you take your journey through grief.  Asking for support is not a sign of weakness, but a sign of strength and courage.  Give us a call today.
