Coping with Loss: One Year Later

As time passes, the pain of losing a loved one may evolve either becoming more manageable or intensifying. There’s no set timeline for healing as each person navigates grief in their own way. Finding outlets for emotions can be beneficial whether through journaling, creating a photo collage, immersing oneself in music, or simply taking a walk.

For those seeking support, the Jewish Pavilion and various hospice groups stand ready to accompany individuals on their grief journeys. These bereavement support services aim to help individuals adjust to their losses by acknowledging the normalcy of grief, offering coping strategies, and providing a supportive community of fellow mourners. Importantly, most of these services are offered free of charge.

Support for All Stages of Life

Transitioning to an elder-care community can be a significant adjustment for many seniors, and Jewish seniors often face unique challenges. Beyond losing their homes and friends, they may also feel a disconnect from their cultural heritage. Recognizing this need, The Jewish Pavilion, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, steps in to provide crucial support. Serving as a resource, the Pavilion offers room visits, festive holiday celebrations, and more to 450 Jewish residents across 50 senior facilities. Importantly, the Pavilion promotes inclusivity welcoming thousands of seniors from all backgrounds into its programs.

For those navigating the complexities of senior care, the Orlando Senior Help Desk offers invaluable assistance. By providing guidance and alleviating caregiver stress, this resource helps thousands of callers navigate the intricacies of elder issues.

Whether seeking support or guidance, these organizations offer vital assistance to individuals and families facing the challenges of loss and senior care.
