For people who have experienced a loss through death, Cranberry Hospice offers bereavement support groups. The groups meet twice a month and provide an opportunity for people to share their thoughts, feelings and experiences with others who are grieving.
The Children’s Bereavement Program is offered to young children ages 6-12. Through various activities including group conversation, games and creative activities, trained facilitators help children to process their feelings. Children benefit greatly from the group as they learn that they are not alone in what they are experiencing. While the children are meeting, parents and/or other family members meet separately to discuss how best to support their grieving child.
The Pre-Teen/Teen Support Group for teens, ages 13-18, provides the opportunity for older children to interact with others as they cope with similar issues. A trained facilitator engages them through a series of group activities including arts and crafts, writing, music and discussions.
There are two adult groups. Individuals have the opportunity to share in valuable discussions with others who are grieving, and also to learn about other community resources that are available to them.
Registration is required for the children’s and pre-teen/teen group, but is not required for the adult group and there is no charge for any of the support groups. Individual bereavement counseling is available on a limited basis.
