For those suffering or anticipating the loss of a loved one, our Bereavement Services offer much needed emotional support. Individual counseling is free of charge to hospice patients’ families, palliative care patients’ family and/or community members.
Worried about a grieving child? Children and teens can receive counseling through the Four Seasons’ Heart Songs Program.
Music provides healing and comfort in times of stress. Learn more about how Four Seasons incorporates Music Therapy in our care.
Facilitated by grief counselors, participative support groups offer a confidential and comfortable environment in which participants may share their grief experiences with others. Each adult support group meets for six sessions; Heart Songs offers separate groups for children and their parents in the 7-session support group, Life in Forward Transition (LIFT).
Educational workshops are primarily informational programs. Attendees may watch a video, hear a bereavement counselor speak about specific grief topics, or ask questions. Monthly workshops include “Grief 101” and “Moving On.”
Group Grief Support:
The first year following a loss is the most difficult for many persons, so during that time you’ll receive occasional mailings and phone calls inviting you to attend bereavement support groups or grief workshops. Additionally, you may borrow materials from our grief library, or choose resources from this Recommended Reading List. Of course, you may also decline services at any time. Should you choose to reach out to us at a later date, simply call 828-692-6178 to initiate the services you need.
Holiday/Seasonal Support Resources:
To cope with a pending or recent loss, you are invited to request individual grief counseling for yourself or other family members in a setting of your choice. Please call us at 828-692-6178.
