We offer many support groups and workshops to help YOU through your grief journey as well as support groups for those caring for a loved one with a critical illness. “Often those who have lost a loved one feel as if they are the only one and no one could understand the multitude of emotions that are running through them each and every day,” says Jolene Senek. “That’s where the HopeCenter comes in, to walk along side those bereaved, offer a listening ear and provide both practical tools to cope with grief as well as a safe place to be heard.” Visit our Support Groups and Workshops Page to learn more.
We also offer many Educational Programs related to caregiving, end-of-life issues, advance care planning, and decision making to community organizations, schools, churches as well as at regional and national conferences. Visit our Educational Programs Page to learn more.
The Pathways Palliative Care Program is a comprehensive care approach for individuals who have a complicated and serious illness. The goal of the Pathways Program is to improve the quality of life for both patients and families by assessing what is important to them through education and support. Individuals are able to establish their healthcare goals and plan for the future. To learn more about this program visit our Pathways Palliative Care Page.
All programs of the Hope Center are offered to anyone in the community at no cost. Everyone deserves to find hope.
