Bereavement Support Group

We invite anyone who is grieving the loss or anticipated loss of a loved one to attend our weekly bereavement group, which occurs every Tuesday at 11:30 am-1:00 pm, at The Institute of Spirituality and Health, 8100 Greenbriar, Suite 220, Houston, TX 77054. This is our way of providing you with support needed to move through grief.

Meetings include FREE LUNCH AND PARKING.

The group is sponsored by The Houston Methodist Spiritual Care and Education, Supportive and Palliative Care and The Institute for Spirituality and Health.

If you have questions about the group, please contact Marilyn Ladin, LCSW at 713-441-0431.

Patient-Family Bereavement

The Houston Methodist Hospital Spiritual Care and Education Department provides grief support to patients and their families. We understand that the loss of a loved one can be deeply painful to those left behind.

Perinatal Bereavement

The loss of a baby through miscarriage, stillbirth, or other means represents an occasion of profound sadness and grief. Our chaplains respond to parents with compassionate listening, spiritual and emotional support, and bereavement education and support. A chaplain is notified by the unit whenever there is a perinatal death. The chaplain visits the parents, provides helpful grief support materials and, a few days after discharge, follows up by telephone.


Houston Methodist Employee Bereavement

As an expression of our faith-based identity and ICARE values, we offer various types of bereavement support to hospital staff members following a family member's death. Support is also available to families following the death of any current Methodist Hospital employee. Departmental directors or managers should make requests for such support.
