Grief is an unavoidable part of life. At some point, we all have to go through this, but that doesn’t make it any easier. After the loss of a loved one, it’s common for you to feel very alone, even when you aren’t. The grieving process can take months for some and it may never fully feel like it’s gone. During this time, it can be hard for you to carry one with your regular life when you’re dealing with so many strong emotions. There is no proper way to grieve, but there is support available to help you through this difficult time. 

Nothing can replace a loved one. At Capital Caring Health, we understand the important role that your loved one had in your life and the intense loss you’re experiencing from their passing. We have a team of trained bereavement counselors who can provide the resources and support you need. Through our grief support in Washington, DC, we can help members of our community through some of their most difficult moments. 

How Does Grief Support Work?

For those who have never had grief support, the idea of it might seem a little confusing. It’s common for many people who lose a loved one to go through this on their own or with people they’re close with. Inviting people into your life at this difficult moment might make some people wary of seeking support. For our grief support services, some people may have had a loved one who received hospice care from Capital Caring Health, but we also help those who are unfamiliar with our organization. 

We know that everyone grieves in different ways and requires different types of support to help them through this. Our grief support services come in different forms to help provide the type of support you’re looking for. For some, this might involve family grief counseling that can be done as a group so that you’re able to go through this process with loved ones. However, we understand that many people may feel uncomfortable discussing their feelings or being vulnerable with family members, so we also offer support to individuals. Seeking outside support like this might make it easier for some to open up about what they’re feeling. Children also experience grief after losing a loved one, although they may experience it in ways different from adults.  As a part of our services, we offer grief counseling meant specifically to help children understand what’s going on. We also offer community-based support groups and workshops.

Working through your grief doesn’t mean forgetting about the person who passed. Through our services, you can learn to adjust to life without this person while still remembering the memories you have of them. Dealing with everything you’re feeling while you’re grieving can be extremely complicated and you aren’t expected to learn how to navigate your emotions on your own. Our services are for short-term counseling and how often a person requires our services may vary. During your counseling, you might find that you need services other than what we’re able to provide, in which case we can make a referral.
