grieving forward

We stand with you.

Find comfort, validation and the knowledge that you are not alone in your time of grief.

Our commitment is to walk with you compassionately as you learn to live without your loved one. We recognize that grief is a process. Time does not heal all wounds, but strong emotional support can help.

Grief encompasses a multitude of contrary emotions. One moment you can reflect on memories with joy and the next moment you can find yourself deep in struggle, feeling a soul-wrenching loss. The slightest incident can trigger an overwhelming flood of emotions. In many ways, loss will shake you to your core, but it is the happy memories, those last moments of closeness with your loved one that you can cherish, finding hope for the future.

We stand beside you in your grief. Everyone’s journey is unique. We respect individual ways of processing emotion. Our support groups and individual counseling sessions are driven by listening, thoughtfulness, and acceptance. Sometimes, you will need to be asked intentional questions to feel safe, while other times you will need the quiet presence of someone who cares. We believe in letting your grieving process occur naturally.

 

Comfort Care Hospice is a primary grief resource for patients’ families. We offer 13 months of bereavement support, and on a need basis, the relationship may be extended. We also provide loss transition services to our greater community.

Our social media channels serve as additional grief resources. Connect with us online or contact the Social Worker at your local office for more information.
