Understanding Grief

Bereavement is the way we process grief. Each of us grieves in our own way based upon our culture, gender and circumstances surrounding the loss. Making decisions in the day, months, and even years following a loved one s death can be wearisome and often quilt difficult. Many experience anxiety over decisions they used to make easily – they find those decisions much more difficult to make since the loss of their loved one.

Grief influences all aspects of your life – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. All of our bereavement services are available to the public even if your loved one wasn’t cared for by a hospice agency.

How We Help

Adult Grief Groups

Our Adult Grief Groups provide you with an opportunity for emotional support, an opportunity to share your feelings, education about the grief process, and ways to cope with a loss.

Community members who have experienced a loss are invited to attend our group without having to make a reservation.

Our Adult Grief Group meets at our office on Thursdays from 1 PM to 2:30 PM. Call (951) 766-9629 for more information.

Youth Bereavement

The Youth Bereavement Program is an 8-week “journey,” called the Journey of Grief, that we bring to the elementary, junior and high schools in the Hemet and San Jacinto School Districts. Children tend to isolate their feelings during a time of loss because they feel as though no one else will understand; however, as they participate in our program and begin working through their emotions, they soon find a sense of belonging and connection within the group.
