  • Tulips-CandlesCentura Health at Home understands that grief often brings up unfamiliar and sometimes confusing emotions and responses. That's why we offer grief and loss support groups, individual counseling, children's counseling and grief education that address the needs of both family members and friends that have experienced the death of a loved one. Grief and loss support groups offer a safe and nurturing environment for questions, concerns, and memories to be shared.

    Many grieving people report that going through death loss often has unexpected impacts on where they stand in their faith and belief systems. Join us for the August Bereavement Education Program as we explore the spiritual challenges and blessings that many experience during the grief process.

    Bereavement Education is a quarterly seminar for grieving people to learn about grief and coping with loss. It runs the 3rd Wednesday of February, May, August and November at locations in northwest Denver, Lakewood and south Denver. There is no fee and no need to RSVP. 

    Grief is a normal and natural response to the loss of someone you love. 

    It can be difficult, painful, and personal.  Centura Bereavement Services offer professionally trained grief counselors with masters degrees that can help you cope with feelings of loss and regret on a one-to-one basis. Our bereavement counselors also specialize in children's counseling with specially designed therapies, kids can express their feelings in an environment that feels safe.

    Families associated with Porter Hospice and St. Anthony Hospice will receive complimentary bereavement services for up to 13 months. Community members not associated with Porter Hospice or St. Anthony Hospice will incur a fee for services.

    For more information, please call 303-561-5100 and ask for a Bereavement Counselor.

    New Grief Groups (3- and 6-Week)

    Porter Hospice and St. Anthony Hospice offer time limited grief support groups that start periodically throughout the year. Our 6-week group is once a week over a six week period. This group is designed for grieving people who have had a death loss at least three months’ prior to the start of the group. Facilitators consist of a hospice grief counselor with a trained volunteer or master’s level graduate student. Each of the six group sessions builds upon the other, with suggested exercises during and in-between groups that help people memorialize the deceased while learning how to move forward in helpful, honoring ways. The same core group of ten people go through the six weeks together, and often, these groups continue to meet together socially to support each other after the hospice group is formally finished.

    The 3-week group is for Newly Bereaved people. It is a similar format to what is described above, only shorter in duration and geared for the concerns of those just now (within the last three months) dealing with a recent death loss.

    Please call the bereavement staff at 303-561-5100 to receive information about becoming a group member.
