There are several organizations in our area who offer grief support services to anyone in the community. It is not necessary for a family to have used their hospice services, for example, to receive additional support after a death has occurred. A few local organizations are listed here;
Gilchrist Services at https://www.gilchristservices.org/grief_registration
Hospice of the Chesapeake of Anne Arundel County at https://www.hospicechesapeake.org
Stella Maris, Inc. at http://www.stellamaris.org
In addition to the bereavement services for the families we serve, we have provided some helpful grief support links below:
Webhealing.com, the first interactive grief website on the internet, offers discussion boards, articles, book suggestions, and advice for men and women working through every aspect of grief. The site’s founder, Tom Golden LCSW, has provided book excerpts and contact information to help those healing from loss.
With nearly 50 internet support groups plus a wide range of online resources, GriefNet provides support for those dealing with all types of loss. Their companion site, kidsaid.com, helps children and their parents deal with grief and loss in an appropriate and safe environment.
The American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) website contains a Grief & Loss section with grief-related articles and information.
