Finding the grief support that's right for you
We know that the journey that begins with hospice care does not end with your loved one's passing. Your grief and how you experience it is uniquely yours. Even if you have experienced a loss before, your feelings and healing process can be very different each time.
Our grief support is built around a simple belief: Grief is normal and necessary. It is part of our human condition, and we must go through it in the wake of profound loss.
Coping with the roller coaster of emotions and reactions can seem overwhelming at times. That's why Pikes Peak Hospice offers a variety of support services for adults, teens and children to help explore, understand and express the grief that is unique to you.
We provide ongoing support through our Living with Grief newsletters free literature on specific types of grief, special presentations, and commemorative events. Individual grief counseling by appointment and grief support groups are available for you and your family as you take important steps toward healing.
Adult Grief Support Groups
We offer a variety of grief support groups led by professional grief counselors and volunteers. Formats include structured groups that may meet weekly or monthly, as well as informal gatherings. We also offer individual counseling and grief literature.
Children's Grief Support Groups
Helping children through the stages of grief requires special expertise, resources, and care.The Children's Grief Support Program at Pikes Peak Hospice is designed to create an atmosphere that is emotionally safe, so kids can explore and express their feelings.
The Pikes Peak Hospice & Palliative Care Center for Grief and Loss offers a number of special events, programs and resources to support the families of our patients after their death, as well as others in our community. Don't miss "Hope and the Holidays" in November.
