A variety of specialized support groups are offered throughout the year, such as:
- Support group for parents who have lost a child
- Support group series for those grieving the death of one or both parents
- Special group series for those dealing with the pain of suicide
- Support group for elementary age children to explore and share their feelings about loss
- Program specifically designed to be used in the schools as a way of helping teens deal with their grief
Personal grief counseling services are available for individuals upon request.
Workshops are offered throughout the year to help professionals better understand and respond to the needs of grieving people. The workshops target professionals such as clergy, counselors, educators, school administrators, health care providers, business owners and managers.
Individuals meet on the third Tuesday of each month at 4 PM to socialize and continue with their bereavement support services. Please call 330.264.4899 to learn more.
Preparing for the Holidays
Every year as the holidays approach, we offer a workshop that focuses on the anticipation and expectations which can make the holidays difficult for those who are grieving. We also invite the community to celebrate the holiday season by participating in the “Lights of Remembrance” project offered in various local communities.
The Margaret Wilkes Lending Library
The library provides a variety of resources on grief and bereavement as well as death and dying.
Semi-Annual Memorial Services
Twice a year, we honor all those served by Ohio’s Hospice LifeCare in the previous six months. These non-denominational services focus on the celebration of life.
Speakers are available to make presentations on topics related to death, dying, grief and bereavement.
