Community Hospice bereavement counselors provide individual, family and children's counseling to help those who have experienced the death of a loved one and who may need support or guidance in dealing with the grief associated with that loss.
Community Hospice support groups provide a safe place for you to explore and express your grief in a comfortable setting, and bond with others who have experienced a similar loss.
Community Hospice offers daytime and evening therapeutic grief support groups throughout the year. The groups are led by our professional grief counselors and meet on the same day/night of the week for eight consecutive weeks. To see what groups are currently offered view our Events Calendar.
To learn whether individual, family counseling or a support group might be right for you, please call 904.407.7001 to schedule an appointment.
Group participants often tell us that they feel like their group has become a family.“Knowing that I’m not alone and being able to talk freely helped me on the road to healing.”
Understanding Grief is a program for the newly bereaved designed to help identify common grief reactions and to learn that healing is possible after the death of a loved one. This free workshop provides grief education and emotional support within a safe, secure environment. Understanding Grief workshops are most helpful for those who have experienced a loss within the last 90 days, and are at least 18 years old. Workshops are held throughout the year at various locations.
Candlelight Services of Remembrance are held several times throughout the year to celebrate and honor the memory of your loved ones who have died. The non-denominational services include a program of liturgy, music and the lighting of candles. Attendees are encouraged to bring a photo or memento of their loved one to display on a Memory Table. If you have experienced the death of a loved one, please plan to attend. Check the Events Calendar for a listing of dates and locations offered this year.
The holidays can be especially difficult when you've lost someone you love. The festivities of this time may heighten the loss you feel and the pain and grief you are experiencing. It's important to remember that you are not alone. The support of others can play an invaluable role in dealing with your grief and helping you heal.
