Grieving a loss?


Missing a loved one is an indescribable feeling.

Feelings of emptiness, loneliness, confusion and abandonment can become overwhelming. It’s difficult to be prepared for the rush of emotions the grief journey can bring. It’s a walk that can eventually bring peace and hope, but it must be done alone.

Each of us experiences grief in our own way and at our own pace. Even if you’ve experienced a loss before, do not expect your feelings or healing process to be the same each time. Grief is really centered around love.

Through our extensive bereavement programs, Hospice of the Calumet Area offers expert support.

Our programs include our “Healing Hearts” grief support groups for children, teens and adults.





We offer many resources, including educational materials on grief and bereavement for all ages, monthly mailings, telephone support, referrals to community services and counseling and support services.


Please contact our Bereavement Facilitator Sarah Ticich at 219.922.2732 or if you would like additional information or need help.



Hospice of the Calumet Area is proud to partner with Sesame Street and their amazing community resource center focusing on helping children with facing life's challenges, including grief and coping.
