Grief & Bereavement Support

Bereavement Program

Holding Hands

The bereavement coordinator provides bereavement support to grieving families & loved ones for 13 months following a patient's death. Emotional support and guidance will be given during this difficult time. Services also include: community referrals, connection with grief support services, ongoing supportive mailings, and supportive phone calls & visits. 

"Grief is not a disorder, a disease, or a sign of weakness. It is an emotional, physical, and spiritual necessity, the price you pay for love. The only cure for grief is to grieve." ~Earl Grollmann

Adult Grief Support Groups

Illustrated Mountains

The bereavement coordinator facilitates & manages the grief support groups offered to all bereaved families, loved ones, & the community. Anyone suffering from loss is welcomed to attend these groups, free of charge. 

GOAL: To assist individuals with their grief & to offer support in time of need. These groups have been organized to provide a place where people can talk about their feelings & how their loss affects them. Participants will learn what to expect from their grief process and ways to cope & heal. 

Educational and supportive videos are often shared on NHHC's Facebook & event page for those interested in additional guidance and support. Follow us on Facebook at:

Hands Up

"Grief is like a journey through the unknown mountains, being tossed into the sea; just as no two snowflakes or fingerprints are the same, neither do two people grieve the same".
