Individual/ Family Bereavement Counseling
Counseling is provided for those who need help coping with grief or loss. Our counselors meet privately with individuals and families at a designated HopeHealth location, or in private homes for those who cannot travel to our offices. Most insurance plans are accepted and no one is turned away due to inability to pay.
Bereavement Support Groups for Adults
Receiving support from others also experiencing the effects of grief can be comforting and reassuring. In a group, there is the opportunity to tell your story, share feelings and experiences, develop supportive relationships and share information and resources. Groups are offered throughout the year in a variety of locations and are tailored to specific needs, including Spousal/ Partner Loss, Adult Sibling Loss, and Loss of a Child. For a full list and current schedule, call (508) 957-0268. All groups are free and open to the public. Donations are gratefully accepted.
Youth Bereavement Support
Children are profoundly affected by the serious illness or loss of a family member or friend. They need healing opportunities to process that loss. Our Hope Care for Kids program counselors can help support children and adolescents through play and art therapy, age-appropriate support groups, specialized workshops and home and office visits. We also offer equine-assisted therapy and supportive experiences through the healing power of nature. Most insurance plans are accepted and no one is turned away due to inability to pay.
Community Crisis Intervention and Support
When a death takes place in or impacts a group setting such as a workplace, a school or other community -- our counselors can provide immediate crisis intervention. They also provide ongoing support and education.
Other Community Programs
Our counselors also provide training and workshops to schools, businesses, churches and community organizations on many topics related to grief and loss. Customized topics can also be designed to meet your specific needs. Here are some sample topics:
