Workshop experiences for bereaved adults provide information and education in the following areas: overview of the grief process; impact of grief on relationsips, world view, jobs, identity, healthy coping and healing.
Grief Support Groups
Our support groups are designed to help individuals share their grief and have contact with others who have had similiar losses. Before joining any group, each member is seen individually by a bereavement counselor. We offer both loss-specific and topical groups.
Workshops offer an interactive opportunity to learn and experience creative approaches to coping with grief in a healthy fashion.
Our bereavement staff and volunteers are available to provide supportive contact by telephone after the death of your loved one.
Throughout the year we sponsor Celebration of Life events throughout the counties to honor and celebrate the memories of our loved ones.
Messages of Caring
Hospice families will receive supportive messages, which give information about the grief process and provide suggestions for coping. These letters also serve as a reminder of our ongoing availability to the families.
The Sea Star Program
Our Sea Star Program recognizes the unique needs of children and teens who have lost a loved one. We offer a comprehensive array of grief support to children and teens through our community.
Individual, Family and Group Counseling
Our children's bereavement counselors tailor the individual counseling experience to meet each child's grieving needs.
We offer support groups throughout our community schools - both public and private. These support groups are designed for children and teens who have experienced the death of a loved one.
Camp Good Grief
Each spring, children and teens throughout our community who have experienced the loss of a loved one can attend this special overnight camp. Camp Good Grief allows time for adventure counseling, sharing, support, celebration, and fun.
Each summer, children age 5-11 can attend this week-long day camp. Camp Stingray provides our young grievers the opportunity to participate in fun activities with trained counselors, while learning positive coping skills.
Family Fun Events
Sometimes, families just need to feel that they are not alone in their grief. Our fun events are designed to unite grieving families with others who have had similar losses in venues that promote family togetherness and fun.
Our staff provides educational presentations, interventions and trainings throughout the community. We offer these services to area businesses, schools, agencies and places of worship.
Reading and learning about the grief process can be helpful. We provide materials about grief and mourning to our hospice and community families upon request or as part of the counseling support. Referrals to other agencies/services will be made as necessary.
