Navigate through the journey of grief with Bluegrass Grief Care℠.
The loss of a loved one – even an expected loss – can be overwhelming. But we want you to know that grief is a natural response to the loss of someone dear to us, and all of us will experience it at some time. While there are common stages of grief, each of us will cope in our own individual way.
Bluegrass Grief Care℠ is a unique counseling service of Bluegrass Care Navigators℠. It’s our passion and purpose to support and guide you as you learn to live with loss - emotionally, spiritually and physically.
Helping you through the grieving process.
Bluegrass Grief Care℠ is for anyone in the community who has experienced the loss of a loved one.

When you’re grieving …
Bluegrass Grief Care℠ staff and volunteers are specially trained to help those dealing with a loss. They offer the following suggestions:
- Give yourself permission to grieve; don't try to "hurry" grief along.
- Talk about your loss with family, friends and others you trust.
- Expect confusion, including a combination of sadness, fear and other shifting emotions.
- Realize that grief can come in waves and may be triggered by something unexpected – or nothing you can identify as a trigger.
- Take care of your physical health; focus on exercise, eating healthy foods and sleeping well.
- Honor the memory of your loved one by planting a tree, giving to charity, volunteering, helping others or enjoying an activity that your loved one enjoyed.
