Grief Support

Grief Support

Support In a Time of Loss

Bereavement is the way we process grief. Each of us grieves in our own way based upon our culture, gender, and circumstances surrounding our loss. Making decisions in the days, months, and even years following a loved one’s death can be wearisome and often quite difficult. Many experience anxiety over decisions they used to make easily. Daily tasks often become difficult. Grief influences all aspects of one’s life – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.

How We Can Help

Support for you and your family does not end with the death of your loved one. Our families receive 13 months of grief support to help them understand and navigate through the grief process. During those 13 months, you will receive follow-up phone calls and a quarterly grief newsletter. We also provide bereavement counseling along with several grief support groups.

Grief Support Groups

We facilitate a grief support group at our Victor Valley office every Tuesday at 10 AM. The office is located at 16147 Kamana Road, Apple Valley, CA 92307.
