If you or someone you know is having difficulty adjusting to the death of a loved one, the bereavement group offers education and support in a compassionate and confidential setting.
Professional Speakers well versed in the Grief Process present helpful information to educate and empower those adjusting to life without their loved one.
Emotional Support is provided by trained Hospice Counselors and individuals that have experienced similar stages of the grief process.
Everyone grieves differently. There is no right way to grieve the death of a loved one. The objective of the bereavement groups is to ease you into living your life through conversation with others of similar circumstances.
