The loss of a loved one is a significant event in the lives of every family member. For us at Faith Presbyterian Hospice, it is a privilege not only to have had a role in the weeks and months prior to a loved one’s passing, but to continue to play a supportive role in the ongoing grieving process. We know that communicating with friends and relatives, tending to legal and financial duties, and just coming to terms with your own feelings can prove overwhelming during the early phases of your grief.
Grief is a process, and it takes time to adjust to life without your loved one. But even as one person’s journey comes to an end, others must carry on, and Faith Presbyterian Hospice is here with continuing support.
To provide help for grief and bereavement during the first year after the death of a loved one, we call, send letters, and offer support. We also offer a host of bereavement resources, including monthly support groups designed to help people find strength through their grief journey. Our approach is holistic—addressing emotional, psychological and spiritual needs. This care is available not only at the time of a loved one’s passing, but also after the death, for as long as needed, when families are grieving the loss of that person.
We recognize that children are particularly vulnerable and need to express their concerns, anxieties and fears. Faith Presbyterian Hospice is unique in having trained Child Life Specialists, social workers, and bereavement coordinators on our team. They provide additional calls and visits, employing therapeutic play and music, and continue to work with the children for as long as they’re needed. These professionals also help you, as a parent or grandparent, understand and better cope with what your child is going through.
Camp Faith is a free one-day event that allows children, grandchildren and their surviving parents and grandparents to express their grief in a safe, secure environment, and to develop creative ways to heal after the loss of a loved one.
Faith Kids is a free monthly support group for children ages 3 to 18. The peer-to-peer support of other children who have suffered a loss has proven invaluable in helping kids become stronger and grieve in healthier ways. Click here to learn how you can support this program.
In addition, Faith Presbyterian Hospice is part of the Eluna Network and offers an annual free, weekend bereavement camp for youth and their families. Click here to learn more about Camp Erin.
For family members needing help for grief and bereavement, our monthly and weekly support groups help participants better understand the grieving process, encouraging them to share their unique experience of loss and to find comfort and healing in remembering and honoring their loved ones.
