Grief Support Resources

Every person must cope with loss of a loved on his or her own terms.

Grief Support Resources

The emotional upheaval these trying times can cause is sometimes so overwhelming that even the support of friends and family may not help relieve the amount of sadness and grief you feel.

At Phillip Bell Sr. and Winona Morrissette-Johnson Funeral Service, P.A. we offer the following aftercare grief sessions:

»  Center for Loss & Transition
A leading provider of information and inspiration in the areas of illness and dying, loss and grief, healthy caregiving, life transition, and spirituality.

»  Sesame Street’s When Families Grieve
Educational content and interactive activities to help support children through their grief.

»  GriefPlan.com
Videos, resources, newsletter, and an online therapeutic grief program created by Dr. Jason Troyer.

»  National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization
Committed to improving end of life care and expanding access to hospice care with the goal of profoundly enhancing quality of life for people dying in America and their loved ones.

Holding a funeral or memorial service for your loved one is a positive first step in the grieving process. Family members and friends get a chance to say their goodbyes, and at the same time, they get to share strong feelings with one another.

In the days, weeks and months following the service, people continue to need others to lean on for understanding, encouragement and guidance. For that reason, many local and national support groups have formed. These groups provide a common place and a comforting environment for expressing emotions through each phase of the grieving process.
