Sharon S. Richardson Community Hospice receives grant from Green Bay Packers

SHEBOYGAN FALLS — The Sharon S. Richardson Community Hospice was recently awarded a grant in the amount of $2,800 from the Green Bay Packers Foundation.

These funds will support the Cup of Hope – Grief Support Group, and the Cup of Feelings – Children’s Grief Support Group, along with expanding the grief support groups to encompass suicide, military and loss of spouse.

“End-of-life education is vital, especially since children grieve differently than adults,” said Marianne Brandt, bereavement coordinator for the Hospice. “These programs help people to realize that there is life after death, and help family members left behind to live well.”

The Hospice, located on Highway 28 west of the City of Sheboygan Falls, is known for its compassionate care of families facing the death of loved ones, and Brandt said their grief support programs focus specifically on education and healing, helping family members deal with this conflict. The Hospice’s grief support groups are open to all in the community who have experienced a loss.

The Hospice offers personalized bereavement care to the families of patients for 13 months following the loss of a loved one. Private counseling sessions are also available. To learn more about these programs, call Marianne Brandt at (920) 467-7950.
