Grief Support

We are dedicated to providing the available resources to facilitate the healing for the life changing journey of grief. It is our goal that all participants discover through their journey a deeper level of understanding of their loss, their grief and themselves. By sharing this journey with each other we achieve a destination of hope and healing realizing that in the process we are and forever will be changed.

Each person’s grief reaction to the death of a loved one is unique and individualized.Shepherd’s Cove Hospice provides a safe environment for expression and resolution of grief. All Shepherd’s Cove Hospice Grief Support groups are offered as a community service to those who have suffered a loss and are FREE to anyone in our service area, even those who have not had a family member under our care.

Some topics addressed in the group setting include: Feelings of Grief, Coping with Change, Remembrance, Identifying Support Systems and How to Cope with Anger and Guilt Related to the Death of a Loved One.
