Serving the Patient, the Caregiver, and the Bereaved
A common misunderstanding is that grief support is only relevant after the loss of a loved one. Grief and loss play a role in our experience long before someone we love dies, and by addressing loss along the way (loss of identity due to illness, a job, relationship roles, health, mobility, assumptions about the future, etc.) we can heal, experience deeper relationships, and ultimately a more meaning-filled life. All Near grief coaches are trained end of life doulas specializing in grief support.
