Grief Support & Counseling

Grief is a very normal and human response to loss. We recognize that each person who loses a loved one responds and grieves in unique ways.

There is no right or wrong way to grieve. Your grief journey will be as individual as you are, and our highly qualified staff is available to offer support and companionship as you move through the grief process.

With Grief Support, you are not alone

It’s never easy coping with illness or loss, especially not when it happens to someone you love dearly. Please know that during the difficult days and months that lay ahead, Capital Caring Health Grief Counselors provide a variety of services that we hope will address your needs.

These services include:

  • Telephone support or ZOOM video calls
  • Short-term individual or family grief counseling
  • Resources for families with children, as well as support groups and workshops.

Our grief support services are available to anyone in our community who has experienced the death of a loved one –  not only hospice recipients. They are also offered at no charge.

If you want to access our grief counseling services, please call us at 844-447-4383 (4-GRIEVE). Please also check out our schedule below of workshops and groups available in your neighborhood in Maryland, Virginia, and Washington D.C.

Who Can Access Grief Support Services?

We offer grief support to anyone who has experienced the death of a loved one, whether they have accessed our Hospice services or not.

At Capital Caring Health, we offer a variety of grief assistance service options including individual short-term grief support, community-based grief support groups, workshops, Services of Remembrance, grief camps for children, and so much more.

Each region that we serve has specific options that can be found on our quarterly calendars.

Individual Grief Support

Individual and family grief counseling offers an opportunity to share your thoughts and feelings related to your loss confidentially. Counselors can help you think through any changes you may need to make and find a new way to a new life that includes remembering the person who has died, in the way you want.

Every loss is a very personal experience and no two people experience loss in the same way. Many people find that it helps to talk with someone who is not part of their family or close circle of friends.

Sometimes people find that at first, they do not want support but then later change their minds. If this happens to you, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We are always willing to help.

Our grief counseling professionals bring a diverse range of educational and work experience backgrounds to the table. Many are Licensed Clinical Social Workers or Pastoral Counselors.

Every Capital Caring Health Grief Counselor is carefully selected and follows a comprehensive training program, which includes learning about grief and the effect that loss can have on our lives.

We offer short-term grief support services that are focused on the individualized needs that you have related to the death of your loved one. The Grief Counselor will initially meet with you for about an hour to ensure our services are right for you.  

Sometimes individuals might require other therapeutic support outside the scope of Capital Caring Health Grief Support. At the conclusion of this first meeting, you and the counselor will decide the frequency of sessions, or whether an external referral would be more beneficial.

Capital Caring Health Grief Support services are offered at no charge. It is possible to offer grief counseling free of charge to everyone who needs it due to the generosity of many community partners and countless individuals who have benefited from our services.

We gratefully accept donations so that we can continue to offer these vital grief support services to anyone in need. If you’re interested in helping us continue our mission of helping those in need, please donate to Capital Caring Health today. Every donation, large or small, helps to make a difference.
