Grief is a natural response to the losses that we invariably encounter on our journey through life.
Nearing the end of life itself, our own or that of someone we love, we face a monumental loss that brings forth intense grief. Chronic or serious illness that may or may not be terminal also brings forth significant anxiety, sorrow, and grief.
Support at this time, through listening, understanding, companionship, and compassion, can help. Grief support can also offer education and guidance regarding the nature of grief and what it often encompasses. As part of end-of-life care, it can support the dying in healing relationships and saying goodbye to loved ones. After a death, it can offer a way through the difficult time of loss.
The Sarah Carson House strives to provide grief support to any resident, family member or friend who requests it. We hope to offer comfort and support to all who grieve.
