Grief Support Programs

Flower with wordsThroughout the year, Calvert Hospice offers several support programs for those grieving the loss of someone close. Programs typically run 7 – 8 weeks and explore a variety of tools and techniques to aid participants in healing and coping.

Understanding Your Grief – A Course on Finding Hope & Healing Your Heart

An 8-week course designed to help adults who have experienced the death of a loved one within the last two years. Exceptions are made on a case-by-case basis. The course combines education with a support group format. We use the book Understanding Your Grief and the Understanding Your Grief Journal each week.
