Grief Help



You will probably feel a variety of emotions when you lose someone you love. The ability to make it through the death of a loved one can be challenging. You may have feelings of shock and disbelief, anger, guilt and depression.


Caring for yourself is not selfish. The period of recovery is different for every person. There is no timetable for grief, so don’t compare yourself with others who have lost loved ones. Your life has changed and healing in your own way is important for the health of your mind, body and spirit. It’s normal for some days to be better than others.

We are offering to provide you with some important and useful grief reference material. This is an aftercare program sponsored by Lake Shore in which the families we have served will receive a series of care letters. It is intended to help survivors through the first year after the loss. The program focuses on family healing, encouragement and understanding. It contains articles written by nationally recognized grief and recovery professionals. If you feel that you could benefit from this careletter, simply fill in the fields and click to submit.
