Hospice given Packer grant

The Sharon S. Richardson Community Hospice is honored to announce that it has been awarded a grant in the amount of $2800 from the Green Bay Packers Foundation.

These funds will support the Cup of Hope - Grief Support Group, and the Cup of Feelings - Children’s Grief Support Group, along with expanding the grief support groups to encompass suicide, military and loss of spouse.

“End-of-life education is vital, especially since children grieve differently than adults,” said Marianne Brandt, bereavement coordinator for the Hospice. “These programs help people to realize that there is life after death, and help family members left behind to live well.”

The Hospice is known for its compassionate care of families facing the death of loved ones, and Brandt said their grief support programs focus specifically on education and healing, helping family members deal with this conflict. The Hospice’s grief support groups are open to all in the community who have experienced a loss; no prior connection to the Hospice is required to participate.

“These programs give dying people and their families hope and educate them about the dying process, which is especially important for children,” Brandt said.

“If they aren’t supported through this trauma, they will continue to face it as adults.”

The Hospice offers personalized bereavement care to the families of patients for 13 months following the loss of a loved one. Private counseling sessions are also available. To learn more about these programs, call Bereavement Coordinator Marianne Brandt at 920- 467-7950 or email mbrandt@ssrhospicehome.org.
