Who is eligible for grief care?

Chaplaincy Grief Care is for adults who have experienced the death of a significant person in their lives. You do not need to have been in our hospice program to take advantage of support groups or classes.

When is support available?

Some people join a support group shortly after the loss, others come years later. The grief specialists at Chaplaincy Grief Care will provide support in whatever way is most comfortable for you.

How do I begin grief care?

The best way is to call us directly at (509) 783-7416 to discuss your exact needs and how we may be able to help. Our grief specialists will listen to your needs and discuss our support options with you.

How is grief care paid for?

Chaplaincy Grief Care support groups and classes are facilitated by professionals and specially trained volunteers. Our groups and classes are offered free of charge.

“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.”
