Compass Care offers grief support to help you adjust with the loss of a loved one. During this difficult time, we understand that coping with day-to-day life can sometimes be a struggle. Below are workshops and support groups to help you along the way.
After your loved one's death, you may feel guilt, loneliness, regret, numbness, anger, denial, shock, relief, peace... or any combination of these.
This is normal. And each one of us grieves differently so don't be surprised if you can't relate to others' experiences or if they can't relate to yours.
Yakima Valley Memorial-Sponsored Bereavement Groups

Living with Loss

Cooking For One
In the class you will be participating with others who share similar desires of learning to cook for one. Everyone participates with hands on cooking and demonstration of meal preparation. Participants will receive a copy of A Meal for Me: Simple Strategies for cooking for one.
Kids Grief Workshop
This hands-on grief workshop will help guide children ages 5-17* and their parents or guardians through the grief associated with death. Each workshop will provide an opportunity for children to express their feelings and thoughts through creative activities and meet others who have experienced a similar loss. While children are participating in activities to assist their recovery, parents and guardians will be involved in their own grief recovery program geared for adults.
*On-site childcare is not available for children ages 4 and under.
