At Hospice of Orleans we offer a Children's Bereavement Group as needed, and we hold a periodic Children's Workshop.
Children require special care following a loss: their emotional fragility can leave them open to low self-esteem, behavioral difficulties, and problems at school.
Led by our trained bereavement coordinators, this weekly meeting is a special place where kids and teens have a chance to meet with their peers to discuss the loss they have experienced.
We offer the comfort and advice that will give these children the strength and support needed to cope with the difficulties they face.
The benefits of these bereavement services can be lifelong: strengthening the children, building up the community, and stabilizing families during a difficult time.
Call us at (585) 589-0809 if you would like more information on our program, or if you would like to refer a friend or loved one.
