Introducing Conversations, a discussion of important topics of the day. Cope & Hope, a conversation about coping with grief, faith and spirituality and living losses.

Ohio’s Hospice Launches Support Program for Community During COVID-19

Ohio’s Hospice is launching the first of an ongoing video series for support called Conversations, a discussion of important topics of the day. The first topic in this occasional series features Cope & Hope℠. The Cope and Hope program is for anyone who is struggling with grief or is grieving and may not know it. 

The Cope & Hope program is a collaboration between Ohio’s Hospice and Pure Healthcare that grew from the need to address grief and loss during the COVID-19 pandemic. The video features several panelists who have expertise in bereavement and grief support. Those panelists include:  

  • Mark Curtis MSN, PMHCNS-BC, ACHPN, LMT, palliative care APRN at Pure Healthcare;  
  • David Hargrave, LSW, CPT, bereavement counseling professional at Ohio’s Hospice LifeCare;  
  • Valerie Houseknecht, MD, FAPA, psychiatrist, palliative care, team physician at Pure Healthcare;  
  • Holley Faulkner, BS, M. Div., D. Min., chaplain and grief services coordinator at Valley Hospice; and  
  • Lisa Balster, MA, MBA, LSW, FT, director of patient and family support services at Ohio’s Hospice of Dayton.  

This program is a free resource to anyone in the community who may be struggling with the impact that COVID-19 has had on their lives or who works in the healthcare field. During the program, the panelists discuss grief, coping mechanisms with grief and difficult situations, faith and spirituality, and living losses. 

Ohio’s Hospice launched Cope & Hope due to the impact COVID-19 has had on the lives of individuals in the community and staff members. With uncertainty and ever-changing guidelines and information, the emotional, physical and social effects have impacted everyone. The panelists in the program offer explanations and support to help those who are struggling with grief and loss.
