Each December, an adult grief support group sponsored by the Grief Recovery Center offers a balloon release. Each participant sends their loved one a message that may never have been said during their lifetime.
Funeral directors at Rabenhorst are sensitive to the needs of the grieving family and friends. It is an important part of our tradition. We strive to help every family through this difficult process, with gentleness, kindness and dignity. For those persons, who continue to have difficulty after the death of an important person in their lives, group therapy is recommended. These courses are designed to help survivors recover from their grief and return to full lives again. There is no charge for participants in any of the programs listed in this section.
Adult Bereavement Support Groups
Rabenhorst Funeral Homes began sponsoring the first Adult Bereavement Support Group in Baton Rouge over 20 years ago. That successful program, which continues on Mondays at the Grief Recovery Center, 4919 Jamestown Avenue, Suite 101, is facilitated by licensed, certified social workers. The non-profit service has expanded offering several different support groups and workshops during the course of the year. Most recently, the center has begun sponsoring two concurrent, 10-week sessions for children and their adult caregivers in the spring and fall.
