Adult Grief Support

Grief is a natural and universal response to the death of a loved one. We understand that there are no right or wrong ways to grieve, but there are healthy ways to cope with loss. Our specially trained, professional grief counselors can help and support adults and children during this difficult time.

Partners In Care offers a variety of opportunities and support for families, friends and the community when a loved one dies. Our ongoing grief support and education for adults and children is available to everyone in the community, not just our patients. Camp Courage helps children understand and express their loss using a variety of fun and meaningful tools. In 2022, Camp Courage will be conducted by Clear Mourning, an Oregon nonprofit organization.
