Offering support can make a world of difference to people mourning the loss of a loved one. Because each of us experiences grief in our own unique way, we offer bereavement services that are designed to help meet your individual needs and those of your family. Anyone in the Eau Claire, Wisconsin, community who has experienced the death of a loved one is welcome to participate in our bereavement programs.
We offer several support groups to help you and your family deal with grief:
