Grief Support

“We shared laughter and tears while our grief counselor helped us find joy and beauty in remembered moments.”

Grief Support

Traveling Grief’s Journey Together

Grief has no timetable. It may come in waves during the turbulent months of a loved one’s illness and then intensify after he or she has passed away. Each experience is unique and deeply personal. Emotions run the gamut from sadness, anxiety and guilt to anger, helplessness and depression. Whatever the reaction, Care Dimensions will be by your side, offering support and comfort – helping you cope and move forward.

Our licensed bereavement counselors support anyone who has experienced a death, regardless of whether their loved one received care from Care Dimensions. With its scope of services and staff, our grief support program is the most comprehensive in Massachusetts.

We help families understand what they’ve been going through, identify resources and provide options for learning more about grief and feelings, individually and in groups. We also teach people how to support and comfort others who are grieving. Services include:

Care Dimensions’ children’s program provides specialized support for children and teens, including Camp Stepping Stones, our summer family retreat.

Supporting Care Dimensions’ Bereavement Programs

Community support makes it possible for us to provide most of our services without charge, enabling anyone in the community to access the support they need, whether or not their loved one was a Care Dimensions patient. Consider supporting us as a volunteer or with your tax deductible donation. With your help, we can continue our mission of healing.

You are invited to honor your loved one through one of Care Dimensions’ commemorative fundraising efforts such as our Memorial Donations, Brick Tribute or Tree of Lights. To learn more, visit Ways to Give.
