Bereavement Support Groups — Haven offers individual, family and group bereavement support, as well as educational programs for anyone who has experienced a loss.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Haven is offering our bereavement support groups, usually held in person, online via Microsoft Teams. All bereavement support is available to anyone in the community, and there is no charge for any of our services thanks to generous contributions to Haven. Donations are always welcome.

Holiday Grief Support

With the approach of the holiday season, many find it difficult to enjoy familiar activities or family traditions because of grief, or may not be prepared to deal with the emotional and physical aspects of grief, which can make getting through the holiday season challenging. Haven wants to offer you some helpful guidelines on how to prepare for the approaching holidays: “Caring for Ourselves Through the Holidays.”

Spiritual Care

At Haven, we honor the value of each personal spiritual journey. Spirituality includes religious beliefs, rites and rituals. It may include religious or nonreligious points of meaning for an individual and their cultural practices and beliefs.

The Haven Spiritual Care Team is here to offer patients and families support, a listening ear, and helpful spiritual care. How you understand yourself, your beliefs, meaningful events, hopes, regrets, relationships and so much more are distinctive. The way we relate to others and the world around us impacts our life’s journey and is oftentimes a place of reflection during end of life.

Honoring the story of our lives is a rich tradition across all cultures throughout history and may serve to integrate one’s life’s experiences into a meaningful whole. If you have a Pastor, Rabbi, Imam, or other person who is important to your spiritual journey, we would be glad to contact that person for you. At Haven, we want you to have access to the people and spiritual resources you desire including music, poetry, sacred literature, prayer shawls, art and ritual.

For a visit from a spiritual care provider, simply mention it to a member of your Haven Care Team.
