Grief Counseling Center
While grieving is a natural part of your loss, many people find that healing and recapturing the joy of living is easier if they do not have to do it alone. Hospice of the Piedmont offers grief support for adults and children whose loved ones have died.
Grounded in compassionate listening and practical guidelines for healing, our Grief Counseling Center for adults has helped thousands of individuals cope with the sadness and depression that frequently accompany the loss of a family member or close friend.
Grief support is available to the families of Hospice patients, as well as anyone in the community who has suffered a death-related loss. All services are offered free of charge.
Hospice of the Piedmont is here to support you in the ways that best suit your needs and wishes including the following options:
- Individual and family sessions can be arranged with a bereavement counselor by calling to schedule an appointment.
- Grief support groups for adults provide a safe, supportive environment where concerns, fears and questions can be discussed. Support groups, led by experienced professional counselors, meet for five or more consecutive weeks. Groups are offered several times a year during daytime and evening hours.
- Our 13-month bereavement mailing program, entitled Seasons, is a resource filled with information, suggestions, and inspirational guidance about the grief journey.
- In addition to support groups and counseling, several educational events are scheduled throughout the year. The Hope for the Holidays program, the annual Service of Remembrance, and other activities all offer opportunities for support.
- (For grieving children and adolescents up to age 18, special support groups and individual counseling are available to address their unique needs and issues through our Kids Path program.)
We can help. Please call Hospice of the Piedmont′s Grief Counseling Center at 336.889.8446 during regular business hours and ask to speak with a bereavement counselor.
