Information and referral for families requesting assistance.
Books on topics such as death and dying, adult and children's grief, and spiritual care are available for checkout. Hospice-related pamphlets and handouts are also on hand.
Hospice members provide presentations and in-services for churches, schools and community groups who wish to learn more about grief. Group support is also available to organizations that have suffered the loss of a team member or experienced a tragedy.
Grief support groups focus on bereavement topics including the value of support during grief, why each person's grief is unique, myths of grief, stages of grief, creating a memory relationship, taking care of yourself and getting through anniversaries and holidays.
Holidays are extremely difficult for those who have experienced the death of a loved one, especially in the first year after the death. These one-session programs, offered each fall, will help the bereaved with:
- Planning for the holidays
- Creating Old and New Traditions
- Remembering Loved Ones
