Center for Hope and Healing

The Midland Care Center for Hope and Healing offers support for those who have experienced the death of a loved one. These services include individual grief and loss counseling for all ages, adult support groups, Family Evenings, youth camps, potlucks, memorials, and opportunities for expressive therapies. Mobile grief support is also available for schools, workplaces, faith communities and other organizations.

The goal of the Midland Care Center for Hope and Healing is to help those who have suffered a loss understand that:

  • Grief is a natural and even healthy reaction to loss.
  • Within each of us is the capacity to heal.
  • The duration and intensity of grief is unique – no magic “finish” line
  • Caring and acceptance assist in the healing process.

Services are available to all individuals in our community. Relationship to a Midland Care patient is not required. For families served by Midland Care Hospice, there is no charge for three sessions of individual grief counseling services the first 13 months after the death of their loved one. For families inquiring from the community, charges are applied per type of service. A sliding fee scale is available as needed. If you wish to attend a support group, donations are accepted.

If you feel you would benefit from this support, please contact Sherry Combs at 785-232-2044 EXT 701107 or scombs@midlandcc.org
