Grief Resources

When a person’s journey has ended with ALS, close friends and family members will begin a bereavement process through which they will mourn and face a future without their loved one.

The resources below are designed to provide family members with tools, resources, and information about grief and the bereavement process and to assist you during this difficult, emotional and often frightening journey.

Please contact your Care Services Coordinator or the Chapter's Bereavement Program Coordinator for additional support and resources.

Bereavement Support 

The ALS Association Oregon and SW Washington Chapter is honored to offer a twice monthly bereavement support group in partnership with Kindred Hospice, to those who have lost a loved one to ALS. The group serves as an opportunity to connect with others who have experienced loss associated with ALS and offers focused time for healing and remembering. The group is facilitated by Kindred hospice staff members who have experience in both ALS and the grief process.
