When you are grieving, it can be difficult to take care of our basic daily needs, therefore grief counseling through Pray Funeral Home’s Aftercare Counseling is more important than ever before. With the additional anxiety surrounding today’s COViD19 situation, many grieving people are searching for help to cope.
It may seem hard to seek out services for our mental and emotional well-being. When a person realizes they need grief support, it can be confusing about how to start or where to go. Pray Funeral Home’s aftercare programs were designed to make it as easy as possible for grieving families to find support, whether this is immediately following their loss, or even several months to years after.
A result from providing such open, consistent, and compassionate grief support is that an individual can normalize the grieving process. Losing a loved one can significantly shape the remainder of our lives by creating changes and additional unexpected lifestyle losses.
It is important to acknowledge when these changes become too much for a person to bear alone, and when an understanding ear is needed. Although we all experience our grief in unique ways, there is so much to be gained from hearing and holding one another’s stories.
My name is Reid, and I am the grief counselor through Pray Funeral Home. I am honored to be a part of Pray’s aftercare services, as these are such vital resources for families after losing a loved one. At Pray Funeral Home, we offer free, regular monthly grief counseling group meetings for anyone in our area who has experienced a loss and is in need of grief support. The regular meeting schedule provides a bit of structure to families when things may feel inconsistent or disorganized. It also lends a sense of community with others who understand the complex emotions one feels following a loss.
We offer a one-time, private meeting at no charge. This can be used however one may need. Some may want a space to talk about their loved one. Some may need time to process the changes loss has created in their own lives. Others may want help finding a mental health professional for consistent, one-on-one support.
Pray Funeral Home’s mission is to care for families throughout their grief journeys. We take great care to meet the needs of each and every person we serve. To learn more about our resources or to schedule a private meeting, contact Pray Funeral Home at (517) 543-2950 or call me directly at (734) 790-5003.
If you would like to join us at our next meeting, there is no RSVP required. Grief counseling meetings are held on the 4th Tuesday of every month from 6-7 pm at Pray Funeral Home, 401 W. Seminary in Charlotte. Due to the COVID19 restrictions support groups will be available by video conference via computer or smart phone. All we need is your email address!
Sending you light and healing thoughts,
