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 Rocky Mountain Chapter provides support in a variety of ways for those who have lost someone they love to ALS. Our virtual bereavement group serves as an opportunity to connect with others who have experienced loss associated with ALS and offers focused time for healing and remembering. We also offer individual support.

Mary King, Bereavement Program Coordinator, facilitates these virtual groups throughout the year. For more information or to sign up, please contact Mary King at or call 303.832.2322 ext 202.
