Grief Support Resources

Every person must cope with loss of a loved on his or her own terms. The emotional upheaval these trying times can cause is sometimes so overwhelming that even the support of friends and family may not help relieve the amount of sadness and grief you feel. 

» Benton Hospice Services

Benton Hospice Service provides bereavement support to anyone in the communities of Benton and Linn County who is impacted by death. Grieving is an important and necessary part of adjusting to and coping with a death.  Whether days, months or years later, many people find education, group support or counseling helpful. Almost everyone can benefit from some form of grief support. Benton Hospice Service offers a variety of bereavement services at no cost. Benton Hospice Service is an independent, nonprofit. These services are a part of the mission and are supported by generous community donations and grants.
