Preparing and Supporting Those Who Have Lost a Loved One to Move Forward in Life
Grief can often seem overwhelming. Tears, pain, sadness and immobility make mourning a grueling process. It’s often a devastating experience. Grieving is a challenging process, but it is necessary to help you accept the loss you have experienced. As you work through these difficult feelings, healing begins.
We provide families with extensive grief support as they work through life’s changes, free of charge to anyone in the community who has lost a loved one.
As part of our Bereavement Services, caring professionals provide grief counseling to patients, their families and the community through individual and group sessions, up to 13 months after a patient’s death.
Grief is very personal, but it also something to be shared. Take advantage of the opportunity to talk with a neutral person, to reminisce, to cry, or to vent your feelings.
We understand the importance of encouragement and compassion through this difficult time. Therefore, throughout the year, we offer no-cost support groups to adults in our community which include the following workshops:
- Growth and Education for Adults Coping with Grief
- Coping with the loss of a spouse or partner
- Coping with the death of a parent
- Coping with the death of a child
- Hope for the Holidays
An up-to-date list of our no-cost grief support groups and workshops can be found on our event calendar.
Healing Journey Newsletter
We provide the newsletter for hospice families for 13 months after a patient’s death. If you have received our services, but have not received a Healing Journey newsletter, please call 910.796.7991.
Youth Grief Support
Bereavement counselors provide young people support as they cope with emotions and changes that may be difficult, confusing, or frightening. Behaviors and feelings that occur in a typical grieving process are explained, along with ways they can be safely expressed. This is necessary before young people can begin to reinvest their energies into their own futures.
We offer a variety of programs to support young people as they cope with the loss of someone special in their lives.
We are here to support you after losing someone you love.
Remember that you have a team of people who care about you and want to assist you in the healing process. Our programs are open to anyone in the community who has lost a loved one, whether or not their loved one was serve by Lower Cape Fear LifeCare.

As a nonprofit hospice, we depend upon the Lower Cape Fear LifeCare Foundation to help us ensure that everyone in the community who needs treatment or support receives it. Your tax-deductible donation can make a huge difference.
