Grief Support

Grief is....

a natural human experience each of us will face at some time in our life. Grief can manifest itself in many ways. Responses to loss include...

  • Confusion/Loss of Focus
  • Fatigue/Sleeplessness
  • Restlessness/Distraction
  • Anger/Guilt
  • Irritability/Anxiety
  • Loneliness/Crying Often
  • Behavioral Changes
  • Physcial Symptoms

There are many aspects to grieving, from accepting the reality of the loss, to remembering and honoring the person who died, to finding new ways to bring meaning to your life after loss.

All of this takes time, and the process can be overwhelming. Each of us grieves in our own time and in our own way, but no one has to grieve alone. And that is why the Hospice Volunteers Grief Support services are here for you.

Grief Support is....

  • A form of support
  • Confidential
  • Provided in a warm and caring environment
  • Education about the grieving process
  • A helping hand and a comforting shoulder to lean on
  • The bringing together of people with shared experiences to help with healing the pain and loneliness of grief over the loss of a loved one
