Hospice of Southwest Georgia offers a multitude of support program and events for families and patients.
Camp HEAL is a bereavement day camp that helps children ages 6 to 17 learn to cope with the loss of a loved one by having a safe and fun environment to have their own voice and begin to heal.
The day camp is funded through designated gifts made to the Archbold Foundation, and is free and open to children who have recently experienced a loss. Camp HEAL offers educational discussions on grief and bereavement, an informal memorial service and other activities, such as horseback riding, art, music and more.
Therapy pets can positively influence the social, physical and mental condition of patients. Interaction with these pets may lower blood pressure, rehabilitate and promote relaxation, relieve agitation, anxiety and stress in patients, and even reduce the need for drug therapy in some cases
Good Grief Luncheon
This casual luncheon is open to anyone who is grieving a loss of a loved one and is looking for support, and provides a time for those in attendance to visit and share with others who may be going through difficult times, as well.
Hospice of Southwest Georgia hosts remembrance services each spring.
For more information on these support programs and events, please contact Linda Conti, Bereavement Coordinator.
