Center for Hope & Healing
Losing someone dear comes with a mixture of feelings that are often at odds with one another: profound sadness, relief, guilt, anger, pangs of love. Feelings are natural and, in fact, they are the very mechanisms we need to cope and eventually be at peace with loss.
Central to the mission of Hope Hospice & Palliative Care Rhode Island is helping people cope with difficult times that follow death. Our staff keeps in touch with those who have lost a loved one for up to one year after the death.
Hope Hospice & Palliative Care Rhode Island also provides a variety of ways to help people who are grieving, as everyone grieves differently. We offer:
- Events that offer support and the opportunity to honor and remember loved ones, including a Spring Evening of Hope & Remembrance and our Light Up a Life Tree Lightings.
- Counseling for children, teens and adults.
- Six-week support group sessions and monthly drop-in groups led by trained facilitators and held throughout the state. They are open to anyone who has experienced a loss, regardless of whether hospice was used.
- Camp BraveHeart, a two-day summer camp, for children ages four to 17 who are grieving the loss of a loved one.
- Visit the Bereavement Support Groups and Events or the Calendar pages for an up to date list of groups.
