Bereavement Services

Call: (509) 574-6746

Compass Care offers many bereavement support groups to help you adjust with the loss of a loved one. During this difficult time, we understand that coping with day-to-day life can sometimes be a struggle. Below are workshops and support groups to help you along the way.

After your loved one's death, you may feel guilt, loneliness, regret, numbness, anger, denial, shock, relief, peace... or any combination of these. This is normal. And each one of us grieves differently so don't be surprised if you can't relate to others' experiences or if they can't relate to yours.

Upcoming Events

Memorial-Sponsored Bereavement Groups

Grief Recovery Workshop

Living with Loss

An 8-week discussion-based course working through the book, Understanding Your Grief: Ten Essential Touchstones for Finding Hope and Healing Your Heart. Offered at no charge.

Gathering at Powerhouse

A time of companionship and support. This group meets monthly for dinner at the Powerhouse Grill on the second Monday of each month at 5:30 pm. There is no book, no program, and no expectation other than that you have an opportunity to enjoy a meal with others.

Kids Grief Workshop

This hands-on grief workshop will help guide children ages 5-17* and their parents or guardians through the grief associated with death. Each workshop will provide an opportunity for children to express their feelings and thoughts through creative activities and meet others who have experienced a similar loss. While children are participating in activities to assist their recovery, parents and guardians will be involved in their own grief recovery program geared for adults.

*On-site childcare is not available for children ages 4 and under.
