Serenity Seekers (Adult Bereavement) Support Group

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all in-person group support groups have been temporarily suspended at The Bellevue Hospital until further notice. Please contact Stein Hospice at 419.625.5269 for support, education and resources regarding bereavement and ways to cope with the loss of a loved one. 


The Bellevue Hospital, in association with Stein Hospice, and Foos & Foos Funeral Service, sponsors a six-week adult supportive/educational group offering comfort to those who have suffered the loss of an adult loved one.

The Serenity Seekers bereavement support group meets twice a year for six consecutive weeks, at the Bellevue Hospital. Call for dates and times of the next series.

In November, the group meets for one two-hour session entitled “Hope for the Holidays.”

Stein Hospice adult bereavement coordinators conduct the classes. Anyone in the community who has suffered the loss of an adult loved one is welcome to attend and join with others who are grieving. This service is completely free of charge to all participants.

The sessions focus on helping the bereaved understand and move forward in the grief process, by facilitating their expression and identification of thoughts and feelings in the grief process; identifying, developing and utilizing healthy coping mechanisms; helping with problem solving around adjustment issues; addressing emotional, cognitive, physical, social and spiritual grief reactions and concerns; and assisting the bereaved to adapt to an environment without the deceased with guidance to experience a transformed relationship with them.
