Individualized Support Groups

In-services for facility staff (assisted living, memorycare, residential or nursing homes): How to be with people in grief: Professional caregivers are often on the front line with families grieving the loss of a loved one. We can help facility staff feel confident interacting with the recently bereaved.
Self-care for professional caregivers: Caregivers grieve too! Help prevent burn-out by honoring your grief and taking care of yourself and each other.
Grief support groups for residents at assisted living and senior communities: Many residents of senior communities are grieving losses old and recent, and unable to get out to attend a support group. We can work with you to provide support at your location.
Grief education/support for your faith community: Does your church have a care ministry? Learn about grief and how to provide support both for the sick and for the bereaved.
