WHO DOES YOUR ORGANIZATION SERVE?
The Holy Cross Hospice Bereavement Center is a critical part of the hospital’s family support services, dedicated to helping individuals who have experienced the recent loss of a loved one. This important bereavement service focuses on people dealing with death by providing emotional and practical advice to help them better cope during this challenging time in their lives.
WHAT IS THEIR BIGGEST CHALLENGE?
Every person grieves differently. Some people gain comfort for grieving from the help and support of family and friends. Others may gain comfort from their faith community. Many other people benefit from additional supports, such as the groups provided by Holy Cross Bereavement Center.
HOW DO YOU HELP THEM?
We’ve designed our groups to meet the needs of the bereaved who are coping with loss. Specialized grieving support is also available through groups targeting those who have suffered the loss of a spouse, parent, child, sibling or close friend.
There is no right or wrong time to join a support group. While most of our participants join our groups sometime during the first year after a loss, anyone wishing to work on loss and grief issues is welcome, even if their loss is more distant in time. We also offer support groups in Spanish.
