An important goal of Hospice of Laramie is to provide support after the death of a loved one. Our bereavement services include individual visits, a variety of bereavement groups throughout the year, and annual memorial service, grief and loss literature and information regarding community resources. These services are available to everyone in the community and are free.
There is no right way to grieve. Grief is an individual process and a natural part of life. Life will never be the same after the loss of a loved one, but experiencing your grief will allow you to adjust to life after loss. Our services help you work toward reconciling to the reality of moving forward in your life without the physical presence of the person who died.
As you move toward integrating loss into your life, you will move toward reconciliation, not just by grieving, but through active and intentional mourning.
Grief: The normal internal thoughts, feelings and images you have when someone you love dies.
Bereavement: The period after a loss during which grief is experienced and mourning begins, “to be torn apart, “to have special needs.”
Mourning: The outward expression of your grief such as crying, talking about the loss, celebrating special anniversary dates.
Hospice of Laramie is dedicated to providing a safe place for grieving people to share their experiences and support one another. Please contact Hospice of Laramie at 745-9254 or contact firstname.lastname@example.org to benefit from any of our bereavement services.
