Center for Hope and Healing – Grief Counseling

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

National Grief Awareness Day

Friday, August 28, 2020

  August 30 is National Grief Awareness Day. In a way, it is an odd thing to commemorate. When a person is grieving, are they not aware of that painful fact every single moment of every single day? Every day for them is “Grief Awareness Day.” So why make this a day to commemorate what … Read More

Building the “New Normal” 

Monday, August 10, 2020

Across town in a small cemetery, nestled in a family plot, lies a small headstone citing a man’s name, along with the words, “Pastor, Teacher, Papa, Friend.” These simple words, identifying  the man behind the stone, also significantly identify his relationship to those left behind.   We know ourselves in the context of relationship… a daughter or son, a spouse, a parent, a friend, a co-worker/employee.  … Read More
