WHO DOES YOUR ORGANIZATION SERVE?
Though The Donor Family Services Department of LifeNet Health promotes healing and peace for organ and tissue donor families as they grieve the death of their loved one, our website 'Healing the Spirit' is open to all who mourn and are coping with the death of a friend, spouse, child, or close relative.
WHAT IS THEIR BIGGEST CHALLENGE?
As if grieving and mourning weren't hard enough, today's culture is not fully supportive of those experiencing the death of a loved one. Subsequently, grief work is not easy and may take much longer than expected to reconcile the loss. This can feel like a lonely journey.
HOW DO YOU HELP THEM?
We realize that all grief is unique and that healing from loss comes in different forms. That's why we offer a variety of services and programs to help you find a sense of comfort and companionship including:
- We have compiled a directory of GriefWords, or thoughtful articles that provide guidance and direction for anyone touched by grief.
- Our Grief Companion® Program pairs families who are seeking emotional support and encouragement through their grief journey with other families who have walked their own journey.
- The Online Memorial Quilt is an opportunity for all to create a commemorative quilt square for loved ones.
- Our Facebook group is a safe and caring environment for families to share your journey through grief and mourning, to express whatever you are thinking, feeling, and going through, to “tell your story” and talk about your loved one, and to receive from and offer support to others who are making their own journeys.
WHERE CAN WE FIND OUT MORE?
