The death of a loved one or someone close to you can be one of the most painful and stressful life events. We all grieve differently – physically, emotional, and spiritually. Sometimes these feelings may overwhelm us with their depth. Bereavement groups can help you recognize your feelings and put them into perspective. They can alleviate feelings of loneliness and the experience of sharing with others, who are in a similar situation, can be comforting and reassuring. Groups can offer a safe and non-judgmental place of support. Sometimes new friendships grow through these groups and new social networks can be established. We also understand that groups are not for everyone, especially if you find you are in great distress or in long-term depression. Our counselors can help identify which might be more beneficial for you – a support group setting or individual counseling.
For more information on one of the groups listed above or to register, please contact us at 970.352.8487.
CounselingGrief Services are available to TRU Hospice of Northern Colorado families for 13 months following the death of a loved one.
If you have lost a loved one in hospice, Individual, Couple, Family, Youth and Child Counseling are available by appointment. Home visits for grief support are available if the client is homebound and lives in the Greeley or surrounding areas.
A Grief Counselor can help you develop a new relationship with your lost loved one and grief can be complicated by a number of factors including any other recent losses – job, home, pet – or any other significant loss. Complications may occur if grief from previous losses resurfaces, because like most things in life, grief can be linked to many things. Grief therapy addresses what is interfering with the grieving process, identifies unfinished business with the deceased and other losses that result from death. Grief counseling is not designed to help you “forget” the loss, but rather help you form a new relationship with the loss.
