Grief Care

Expert guidance during seasons of grief

The death of a significant person can be a time of great pain. Grief may affect you physically and emotionally. You may experience shock and numbness; sadness, anger, fatigue and exhaustion; restlessness and irritability. You may find yourself crying unexpectedly, searching for something or you may be forgetful, confused or distracted. The experienced team from Chaplaincy Grief Care offers support and education for family and friends. We invite you to follow a path through the pain that assists you in adjusting to life without the person who died, as well as finding meaning again.

  • 10-week support groups are available for adults who have had a spouse, partner or other significant person die and are seeking a safe place to share their grief experiences with others. Click here for our current schedule.
  • One-time classes are offered throughout the year to help grieving people understand their grief and how to deal with the stress, loneliness and confusion of the holiday season.
  • Through one-on-one support a bereavement specialist provides a listening presence and a safe place for you to talk through your grief reactions and discuss coping strategies.

“I’ve learned that I’m not going crazy.”

“I was comforted to know that my not feeling good is normal, okay and [it’s] important to embrace how I am feeling. It’s been very helpful to be able to talk about my husband and what happened and how much I miss him.”
