Grief Support

A Journey Through Grief

Bereavement is a period of mourning after a loss, especially after the death of a loved one. Hospice Touch offers bereavement counseling prior to, and for 13 months after the death of a patient. This includes emotional, psychological and spiritual support and services to assist with issues related to grief, loss and adjustment. Hospice Touch of Tomah Memorial Hospital holds a grief support series to help people who have lost a family member or friend.

Our six-week group grief support and education series will be held each Tuesday beginning March 13 – April 17 from 9 a.m. – 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. – 7 p.m. at the Hospice / Palliative Care offices at 601 Straw St., in Tomah. Participants can choose either the morning or the afternoon times.

Hospice Touch spiritual care and bereavement coordinator Debbie Warthan said the series, titled “The Journey Through Grief,” will define grief and look at helping people cope on a daily basis.

“It helps to know that you’re not alone; that other people are feeling and thinking the same way that you are,” said Warthan. “We understand that it takes courage to come and we want to let people know that they can participate in whatever level they are comfortable with.”


There is no charge for the program; however, Warthan said participants should  register by calling Hospice Touch at (608)374-0250 in Tomah by March 1.
