Lutheran Medical Center

Grief Support

Our grief support groups are offered at Lutheran Medical Center - Collier Hospice Center in Wheat Ridge, Colo., or virtually (online).

Lutheran Hospice provides an array of grief support services created to meet the needs of those who have lost a loved one within the previous 13 months. Due to current health restrictions, services are provided virtually or, to a limited degree, in-person at Collier Center. To learn more and to register, please contact the Bereavement Program at 303-403-7410.

Grief Education and Support for the Recently Bereaved

Three week grief group aimed at supporting those within the first six months following the death of a loved one. It is designed to deepen the bereaved person’s understanding of grief and to gain support from the group. Registration is required. Group is held monthly. Suggested donation is $25, payable at first session.

Individual Grief Support

Individual in-person and virtual grief support is available on a limited basis for those who have experienced a death loss within the last 13 months. This offering is suitable for those who need more in-depth support than is available through our groups.

Grief Education for Bereaved Spouses & Partners

This six week group emphasizes education and support for the bereaved partner or spouse with the goal of improved adaptation to loss. Participants must be four months or more past their loss. Group is held several times a year. Suggested donation is $50, payable at first session.

Coping with the Holidays

This virtual presentation provides specific information on handling grief during the holiday season. Ideas for self care, managing and modifying holiday demands and honoring/ remembering lost loved ones in special ways are provided. We review the basic effects of grief and give you “permission” to manage this demanding season in the way that is best for you. The event is free of charge.

Memorial Services

Quarterly virtual memorial services to honor loved ones who have died in our hospice program are offered in Mar, Jun, Sep and Dec. Invitations are sent to family members for this special opportunity to remember loved ones.
