Loss and Helplessness in a Pandemic

Hope begins when we learn how to release the pain of loss. Deborah Grassman and the Opus Peace Organization have released two self-help videos that provide tools can help us learn how to reckon with the helplessness and loss of control we face during this pandemic.

These newly released short videos are meant to help people mourn their many losses and learn how to stay grounded during this time when helplessness and loss of control is escalating.

"Hospice of Northwest Ohio is amazing. I only had them for a couple of months for my mom. They took a big load off of me as I was the only caregiver for my mom. They gave me so much support, comfort and help. I cannot praise them enough. Thank you."
