Rainbow Bereavement Counselor Laura Wessels will host Monday Morning Joe from 8:30 to 10:00 a.m. at the Rainbow Hospice Care Inpatient Center (IPC). Please park in the lower level- parking lot and enter through the left door.
Update: This group will now be offered every Monday! We are asking that people who want to attend call ahead to RSVP to Laura Wessels, so we can keep the group at 10 people.
Rainbow Bereavement Counselor Hilary Furnish will host an Honoring Grief- Six Week Support Group, also at the IPC. The group will meet each Monday and will be offered twice a year in the spring and fall from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. The fall session will begin on September 12th and run through October 17th. This group will focus on helping acknowledge, honor, and better understand grief and loss. Registration is required. Contact us for more information or to register.
Our Bereavement and Spiritual team of Laura Wessels, Hilary Furnish, and Steve Steele are also here for you if you need some one-on-one grief support. Don’t hesitate to contact them at (920) 674-6255 and one of them will gladly assist you.
Taking care of oneself and receiving support from friends and family is extremely important after suffering a loss. It is also often useful to access additional resources such as support groups that offer a safe, confidential place to identify and express thoughts and feelings, and gain additional perspective and comfort from those who are sharing similar experiences.
Whether on the telephone or in person, our bereavement and spiritual team is here to talk with you as you travel this grief journey that be both disorientating and painful. We are happy to offer recurring visits to walk with you as you learn to move forward without your loved one. Contact Bereavement Counselor, Laura Wessels or Hilary Furnish to set up a visit.
Each year Rainbow hosts several memorial events for families who have lost a loved one, including an Annual Memorial Service in the spring and the Holiday Grief Program in November. Contact Rainbow or check out our calendar for upcoming events.
Furnish and Wessels invite conversation and response as they reflect on aspects of grief. As the COVID–19 pandemic continues, their blogs address COVID grief. Furnish and Wessels are also available for individual bereavement counseling. Contact them by calling Rainbow Hospice Care at 920-674-6255.
