CFHV Bereavement Program
The CFHV Bereavement Program is available at no cost to adults in Knox and Lincoln counties. It offers services to those who have experienced the loss of a loved one through anticipated or unexpected death. Whether an individual prefers reading material, or being part of a support group, our services are meant to offer the opportunity to sort through the fears, frustrations, confusion, and sadness that may accompany a death. Our program is always developing and aims to be responsive to community needs.
Grief Support Groups:
These groups offer an opportunity to express feelings in a safe and confidential setting with others who are experiencing similar losses. Our groups are co-facilitated by trained hospice volunteers. At present we are offering a Drop in Bereavement Support Group that meets on the 2nd Wednesday of every month that is open to anyone coping with the loss of a loved one. Please call 207-230-0042 for more information
Mailings are sent to those who wish them for a period of thirteen months following a death. The contents are designed to provide support and an understanding of some commonly experienced reactions to death and the grieving process, along with some suggestions that others have found helpful in living with their grief.
