Bereavement Services

Bereavement information, bereavement packet and details on coping with your loss.

The death of a loved one is a jolting experience. Shock, grief and sadness can be overwhelming. Emotional support and resources are needed during this difficult time.

We'll work with you to help you begin the journey through your loss. Our Bereavement Packet (PDF) is filled with grief education materials and information on local and regional support groups.

What are Bereavement and Mourning?

Bereavement is the period after a loss during which grief is experienced. Mourning is the process by which people adapt to a loss. Cultural customs, rituals and society's rules for coping with loss influence mourning.
