Are you grieving the loss of a loved one?
Grieving the loss of someone we love is one of the most profound experiences of life. Our whole being — body, mind and spirit — responds to the stress of loss. Moving through the complex emotions and reactions that surface during this painful but normal human process takes time. The duration and intensity of grief depends on many factors that are subject to change and cannot be prescribed. Although no one can take away grief, tapping into support systems, identifying internal resources, recognizing common responses to bereavement, and intentionally tending to physical, emotional, and spiritual needs can make it less difficult to live with loss.
At Blue Ridge Hospice, we consider it a privilege to help those who are grieving regain their balance and resume healthy living. Whether you are looking for personal guidance or walking alongside someone who is, contact us to see how we can help. Individual support is provided to children and adults in a compassionate setting that encourages self-care and hope. Other grief services are provided to individuals and groups in a variety of settings including but not limited to homes, schools, churches and facilities. Extensive resources for people of all ages and stages in the grief process are available to everyone in the community, and are free of charge.
In addition to the wide variety of age and loss-specific grief support groups Blue Ridge Hospice offers, our experienced grief counselors are available for phone consultations and referrals, can suggest articles and other literature, videos and tapes from the Blue Ridge Hospice lending library pertinent to your circumstances, and provide onsite support in traumatic situations. Families whose loved one received Blue Ridge Hospice services have the additional benefit of 13-months of one-on-one or family grief counseling.
