In addition to the bereavement services for the families we serve, we have provided some helpful grief support links below:
Webhealing.com, the first interactive grief website on the internet, offers discussion boards, articles, book suggestions, and advice for men and women working through every aspect of grief. The site’s founder, Tom Golden LCSW, has provided book excerpts and contact information to help those healing from loss.
The Director, Dr. Alan Wolfelt has been recognized as one of North America’s leading death educators, authors and grief counselors. His compassionate messages about healing in grief speak not only to the intellect but to the hearts of all who hear him. This link provides helpful information about grief as well as many resources and understanding.
The American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) website contains a Grief & Loss section with grief-related articles and information.
The National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization’s website provides a host of information and resources for people facing a life-limiting illness or injury and their caregivers.
