Cleveland Clinic professionals, caregivers and volunteers work together to provide Grief and Bereavement services which are tailored to companioning with you on the journey.
Memorial Services provide sacred stillness to remember and activities to honor your loved one. Group and individual support options blend a focus of listening with head and heart. Resources provide quality support close to your home. Education brings practical help with what to expect through written content and links to Grief and Bereavement web sites which offer video, podcast and forums to learn from and share your experience.
We welcome the opportunity to serve you.
Our approach is compassionate listening and is open to all beliefs as well as those not comfortable with religion. Spiritual care encompasses that which connects an individual or group to their meaning and purpose, to others, to creation, and to the significant or sacred.
Advance planning to proactively think about your healthcare wishes related to end-of-life care.
