At Ballard-Durand Funeral & Cremation Services, we are here for you after the funeral.
Coping with loss is a personal experience-one in which family and friends may not be able to relate. Honoring your grieving process takes an understanding. Being aware of your emotions, the emptiness a loss leaves can be trying at times. You may feel overwhelmed and alone. We are here to support you.
Grief does no end with the funeral and neither does our service to you. We will provide assistance and support for as long as you need it. Our Grief Support Services Program, support groups and resource services are available to our community at no charge.
All groups are facilitated by Victoria Assumma, LCSW, ACSW, OSW-C, CCATP, Grief & Bereavement Counselor
Spring Grief Circle Group Program:
Seasonal Change and Grief: Spring is here and life goes on. However, the change in season along with pandemic fatigue can be challenging. We think of the past and yearn for what could have been as we try to find ways and copy with loss.
Please join us as we explore grief and change. Remembering, honoring, and the important of self-care will be discussed.
Grief Circle Groups are held every other Saturday at 11:00 AM
