Whenever You’re Ready

Virtual resources and support you need for your grief journey – whenever you’re ready to begin.

You, Too? I Thought I Was the Only One

At the start of COVID-19, with the restrictions on gatherings and social distancing from our own friends and family members, we at Hospice & Palliative Care of the Piedmont grew increasingly concerned about the bereaved in our community. 

So much of what helps our patients, their loved ones, and even those in the community who’ve suffered a great loss through grief, is simply education. Learning about the grief and healing process. Knowing they have a cohort of people who are battling the same, slow, and sometimes lonely season.

Understanding that through it all, they’re never alone.

Because grief doesn’t stop for a pandemic. And neither does the need for therapy and group support. 

Whenever You’re Ready is a grief education series featuring Hospice & Palliative Care of the Piedmont support staff. Together, our goal is to provide support and counsel to those suffering a significant loss – particularly those who’ve experienced grief in the midst of isolation. 

Join our team as we explore what it means to grieve well and how to take healthy steps toward healing, no matter where you are on your journey.

Spirituality & Grief

Finding strength beyond the traditional religion with Deloris Rapp, M.Div. and Darius James, M.Div., M.Ed.

Grief is more than a set of rules or guidelines. Everyone experiences grief differently and at their own pace. But studies show those who have the strength of spiritual support – whether they claim a religious affiliation or not – begin to show signs of healing sooner than those who don’t. Read more.

Children & Grief

Studies show children react very differently to grief than adults do. Even still, while no adult grieves at the same rate or with the same reactions, neither do children. Here are a few ways to help your child through the grief process – whether they’re in preschool or heading into their late teenage years. Read more.

Living with Grief, Hope for the Future

A promise that it won’t always be this hard with Lori Shaw, LMSW

It may not seem this way now, but eventually, time will pass and the good days following your grief will begin to outnumber the bad. While the impact of a significant loss will stay with you forever, hope can stay with you just as long if you let it. Read more.
