Bereavement is the process of adjusting to life without our loved one. The process is different for everyone and may affect our thoughts and feelings for months or even years. Sometimes it can affect us physically in ways that are difficult to understand.

Bonner General Health offers:

  • Classes
  • Support Groups
  • Individual Counseling
  • Community

What: An accepting conversation within a group setting, sharing experiences of loss.  This group is open to anyone who has gone through losing a loved one, whether it be a spouse, partner, parent, child, sibling, or other family member or friend.  Facilitator Peter Gilmore relies on the group’s wisdom rather than coming with a prepared agenda, allowing the conversation to flow from the needs of those present.  All information shared in the group setting is confidential to promote an environment of trust.  The group size is small, usually between 6-10 members.

No cost to residents of Bonner and Boundary Counties.


When:  The 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month

Time: 5:00 – 7:00 PM

Register:  Contact Hospice at (208) 265-1179

What:  The loss of a loved one is a traumatic event that brings out strong feelings and responses as we struggle to adjust to our forever-altered lives.  Friends and relatives are often challenged to support us when we need them most – they may not know how. 

Everyone wants us to “be over it now,” – so where can we turn?

Our Grief Acceptance Group provides an opportunity to learn about grief and how to adapt to it, identify goals and personal strengths to help participants cope, and even discover unsought gifts and opportunities for growth from the loss.  It is also a safe space to share your grief experiences, thoughts, and feelings with others going through the loss of another person through death.

When:  2024 course dates TBD.

Where: Bonner General Health Campus

Time: TBD

Contact:  For more information or to register, contact Courtney Kruse (208) 265-1179.

*This service is provided at no cost to our community by Bonner General Community Hospice.

Stay tuned for details about Kids Camp 2024.

This camp provides children with the tools to cope with the loss of a parent, grandparent, sibling, or close friend. Held in the Spring, this camp is facilitated by our Bereavement Coordinator and trained hospice volunteers. 

Bonner Community Hospice is your resource for books containing information about death, dying, and bereavement.  Please visit the library in our office, located at 520 N Third Avenue, inside the hospital, Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

It may be helpful to speak to someone about our feelings and sort through issues associated with the adjustment to our loss. Bonner General Health Community Hospice offers several types of bereavement support and services suitable to the needs of each individual. Learning how to cope with that loss is imperative for the health of the grieving family and friends.

Bonner General Community Hospice offers classes, support groups, and individual counseling to help with the grieving process.
