If you have lost a spouse, child, family member, or friend, it may be hard to feel optimistic about the future right now. You have probably found that there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel. This can be a confusing time when you feel isolated and have many questions about things you’ve never before faced.
Grief Recovery is a faith-based grief support group that can help you face the challenges of loss and move toward rebuilding your life. We will follow the grief recovery book Beyond the Broken Heart: A Journey through Grief by Julie Yarbrough.
To help defray the costs of materials, a donation of $10 is suggested.

A celebrated part of New Orleans culture is the jazz funeral. If you’ve never experienced one, you’re not alone—for the most part, it’s a Louisiana ritual. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t plan a larger-than-life jazz funeral event in any part of the country. These kinds of services are especially popular for musicians.
Congratulations to January’s winner of the Beinhauer Caregiver Excellence Award (CEA)!
Beinhauer’s Community Outreach Director Katie Brandt, and Mario Chiodo, Volunteer of the Month of January.
The winner of the Caregiver Excellence Award (CEA) for Januay 2017 is Mario Chiodo, a volunteer at Family Hospice. He has been volunteering there since 1989 – interrupted only by a ten year-period, during which he cared for his cancer stricken wife until her death. Mario is a skilled barber, who brings a renewed sense of dignity and comfort to the patients he visits by giving them a fresh haircut or shave. He is kind, gracious, and humble, with a keen sense of humor and of appreciation. When you meet Mario, it is easy to see why the patients and families he gets in contact with truly respect and love him.
All area hospices are invited to submit nominations of caregivers of excellence!
