How Can Circle of Life Help?
Lean on us when you need help coping with your loss. Our licensed bereavement counselors are here for those left behind. The bereavement team provides one-on-one counseling, grief education, workshops, a children’s loss program and other resources. You can also join one of our grief support groups where you can find strength in being in a safe environment with others walking a similar path.
Circle of Life is the only hospice in Northwest Arkansas providing grief support groups facilitated by Masters level clinicians.
Support Groups for Adults
Grief support groups are offered for individuals grieving the death of a person whom they loved. Groups provide a safe and supportive environment for participants to express their feelings as they process their grief. Our support groups are open to anyone in the community, regardless of whether they were on our hospice service. Registration is required in advance of the class. Please call 479-872-3364. Please see our calendar for dates and times.
Adult Six Week Grief Class
Our six week grief classes are designed to provide you with a set of concrete skills and information to better understand and process your grief. Open to all adults in our community, our adult Grief Classes are offered on a quarterly basis and are offered at both our Springdale and Bentonville locations. Please see our calendar for dates and times.
Support Ceremony for Healthcare Workers
The Circle of Life bereavement team presents a virtual display of support for our clinical staff during this difficult time. This has been a very trying year and we know that many healthcare professionals are exhausted, overwhelmed, and grieving the loss of residents, patients, friends, and family members.
We are all in this together and we stand beside you through this difficult time.
