Aultman offers counseling to anyone experiencing the loss of a love one. Counselors who specialize in grief address loss ranging from the death of a loved one or pet to infant/child loss to anticipatory grief. Counseling may assist in easing loss and making grief more manageable. Most major insurances are accepted, but no one will be turned away for the inability to pay.
With the exception of the Lunch Bunch, the grief groups meet at the Women’s Board of Aultman Hospital Compassionate Care Center. The facility is located on the Aultman Woodlawn campus at 2821 Woodlawn Ave. in Canton.
Please call Beth Wengerd at 330-479-4835 for an appointment or more information about any of these grief sessions.
