Bereavement Program

An 8-week program which helps discover new tools to deal with loss, no matter what your loss is ... be it death of a loved one, broken relationship, loss of health, loss of job, loss of hope and dreams. There are over 40 different kinds of losses that a person can experience in a life-time. The uniqueness of the program lies in the essential idea that grief is a normal and natural emotional reaction to loss. Although that is an accurate statement, the majority of guidance for grieving people tends to move them toward their intellects to deal with their pain.

We believe that: “Grievers don’t wind up at our door with broken heads, they arrive with broken hearts.”
~John W. James and Russell Friedman, founders of the Grief Recover Institute.


My Path

My Path is a bereavement program for persons with cognitive impairment to process the grief and losses they experience through death of a family member, friend or housemate. This is a four-week program which allows the participants to acknowledge their grief and help them to say goodbye to the pain and hurt the death has caused. Specially trained volunteers support individuals with cognitive impairment to process the grief and losses they experience through death of a family member, friend or housemate. It also helps them to say ‘hello’ to a new time with new tools to carry them through their grief.
