Winter Bereavement Programs - Archived
(Southwest Michigan) - Each person’s grief is as individual as a fingerprint. Coming together with others who have experienced the loss of a loved one is often a comfort. Grief support groups create a safe and confidential atmosphere for all participants with educational and support materials to help guide participants.

Good Grief is a seven-week program offered by Hospice at Home, a Lakeland HealthCare Affiliate. The program covers topics such as why you feel the way you do; how to cope with loss, guilt, and regret; and finding a sense of peace. The next sessions begin in January and will be held weekly at your local Hospice at Home office:
  • Tuesdays, January 8 to February 19
    Thursdays, March 7 to April 18
    3:30 to 5:00 p.m.
    St. Joseph - Hospice at Home
    4025 Health Park Lane

  • Wednesdays, January 9 to February 20
    3:30 to 5:00 p.m.
    South Haven - Hospice at Home
    05055 Blue Star Highway

  • Thursdays, January 17 to February 28
    3:30 to 5:00 p.m.
    Niles/Buchanan- Hospice at Home
    4017 Chamberlain Road
The hour-and-a-half sessions provide an opportunity for participants to connect with others who are experiencing the loss of a friend or family member. The support group is facilitated by an experienced Hospice at Home Bereavement Counselor. Space is limited; please register at any Hospice at Home location or call (800) 717-3811.

Hospice at Home also offers ongoing groups that meet during the evening for adults and children at Lory’s Place Grief Healing and Education Center. The groups include regularly scheduled age-appropriate support group sessions that allow children and adults to interact with peers who have suffered similar loss. Groups for children and adults who are anticipating a loss or who have experienced a loss through pregnancy are also available, as well as educational and workplace grief programs. All community bereavement services are provided free of charge thanks to local community contributions.
