Grief is a unique experience for everyone. Although people often experience similar feelings, each loss is different, which is why Pathways provides individualized support to family members, friends or anyone affected by the death of your loved one. Our services include one-on-one support, support in a group setting, written resources and materials, and memorial services. While we generally provide bereavement services for a period of thirteen months, we customize services to the individual and can provide support for as much or as little time as needed. We also support our patients and families through the "anticipatory grief" experience, which often occurs before a death. As a team, we walk alongside you on your journey.
Our Bereavement Services include...
Talking about grief can lighten its weight on your heart and mind. Phone conversations with our Bereavement Coordinator can help you develop coping strategies and reduce emotional stress.
We offer a series of newsletters written by a grief specialist who share personal insight into experiences of grief and mourning. Newsletters include personal reflection as well as healthy ways of dealing with grief. Our Bereavement Coordinator will guide you to additional resources according to your needs.
In-person and Virtual Visits
Sometimes it helps to see a friendly face as you share your thoughts and feelings. We can schedule these visits in your home, virtually, or at a location convenient for you.
Gathering with others who have experienced the death of a loved one provides opportunities to heal, learn to cope, and form friendships. Our support groups are facilitated by our skilled Bereavement Coordinator and are open to the community.
Each spring we invite our bereaved families and friends to gather together in an interfaith spiritual service to remember and honor those who have been a part of our Pathways family.
