Grief education and support

The Kaiser Permanente Hospice Bereavement Program provides opportunities for people who are grieving the death of a person to learn about and express their grief in a safe, supportive, confidential environment. Regular participation in a support group can increase your base of support, decrease feelings of isolation, and help you develop coping skills.

There are 4 grief support groups that meet year-round throughout the Northwest Region. There is no curriculum for these groups. Anyone is welcome to attend as many sessions as they feel they need. Participants are encouraged to call in advance to connect with the facilitator. The support groups meet twice a month at Kaiser Permanente Westside Medical Center, and Cascade Park, Interstate, and Sunnybrook medical offices.

Also offered is "Living After Loss," an 8-week series. This is an education-based grief class that follows a prepared course of topics. The class is offered at various Kaiser Permanente locations throughout the year.

For more information or to sign up for a class or support group, please call the Hospice Bereavement Program at 503-499-5307.
